What's Your Spin On Hanukkah?

Nov 30, 2018

Live from the Clergy Suite, the clergy discuss one of the original intersections of tradition and innovation: the holiday of Hanukkah. Rabbis Klein Miles, Nickerson, Frimmer and Cantor Coyot discuss the historical narrative of war (the Maccabees and the Seleucid army) followed by a rabbinic reinvention focusing on faith and light. How does these stories shape our practices today? In what ways are we adding our own innovations to this beloved tradition? How might your Hanukkah celebration look different this year? Links for items talked about in the show: Hanukkah resources: goo.gl/MgsNQC from Cantor Coyot.

The Spirituality of Motherhood and Music

Nov 28, 2018

Conversation with Cantor Tifani Coyot and Cantorial Soloist Rabbi Jaclyn Cohen moderated by Rabbi Joel Nickerson. At Temple Isaiah the cantorial department oversees and helps the rest of the clergy and staff create the vision around Music, Ritual, Spirituality and Prayer. How does being a mother/parent influence the way we craft the ritual, music and prayer at Isaiah? How has your understanding of ritual and prayer influenced your parenting? What music and rituals happen in your home? Why that piece of music? Do your sons and husbands have a favorite Jewish song? For those of us who are not musicians or clergy…what strategies would you recommend for them to add to their parenting?

Gratitude In A Season Of Gobble Gobble

Nov 20, 2018

Jewish tradition teaches “Who is rich?” and the answer is simple, “Those who rejoice in their own portion.” (Pirke Avot 4:1) Yet, many of us struggle, daily, to find words of appreciation for all that we have. In Psalm 92, we are invited to thank God in the morning – to praise God’s lovingkindness (chesed) – and then again in the evening with thanks for God’s faithfulness (emunah). How often do we use our first and last words of the day to offer thanks and praise? In this season of Thanksgiving, when you are about to sit at a table and be asked “For what are you thankful?” we want to flip the question on its head and instead inquire: “What gets in the way of gratitude?”
