TAO – Temple Adath Or – is a community of light. A Kabbalah-based community, TAO is led by Rabbi Marc Labowitz, a visionary leader bringing his warmth, wisdom and wit to us at weekly Shabbat services.
This week, Rabbi Marc welcomes Rabbi Amy Pessah to discuss the drash. Her topic is Reward and Punishment: An Exploration into Freewill and Consequence
Our Torah portion this week, Behukotai, tells about how the consequences of our actions–for better or for worse. Is there causation, correlation, or nothing at all between our actions and what we receive in return?
