By way of preface:
The "Jewish Spirituality" mailing list is an outgrowth of several conversations in which people told me that they felt "alone" in their quest to develop their relationship with Gd. I knew they weren't alone, just from my own interactions with other people, and so I extended an invitation to the Jewish community of Rhode Island to join in a weekly mailing list exploring issues within their relationship with HaShem.
Many of the messages posted on the list reflect people's personal struggles and sensitivities. As a result, some of the people who post remarks on this list opt to do so anonymously; they send me the e-mail, and I drop their names. The list is "blind cc'd," as well, so that no one knows who else is on the list. Our goal is that the members of this list should draw strength and inspiration from the words of their peers, and thereby continue to develop as Jews.
If you would like to join the list, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Jewish Spirituality - Volume 10 / 30 Nisan / May 5
Home is where the heart is?
Look at old issues
Subject: Home is where the heart is?
I have a simple question. When I read books, or listen to music, I get into a mood which helps me feel elevated, closer to my soul. This is not even something particularly Jewish - it happens to me when I am drawn to strong emotions, about anything.
The problem is that in my home I get so caught up in my daily routine and existence that these emotions become dull.
Does anyone have advice on turning my home into a more "spiritual" place?
Subject: Look at old issues
By: Mordechai Torczyner
I just want to recommend that you look at some of the old issues, to see some pre-Pesach questions and discussions to which you might be able to contribute.
I get the feeling that some questions are considered "complicated" right off the bat, and so people are loathe to take them on. Nonetheless, I feel it is important that people respond to these questions with whatever thoughts they have.
Have a good Shabbos,
