Escape or Embrace: A Torah View of Material Pursuits
The emaciated holy man sitting isolated on a mountain-top. The morbidly obese drunkard sprawled again on the barroom floor. Are these the choices faced by a Jew - embrace the material or flee it for Divine communion? The answer is a resounding “NO.” Join Rabbi Eliyahu Safran, OU Kosher’s Vice President -Communications and Marketing, in an articulate and moving exploration of the relationship between body and soul. Redeeming the physical, not blindly shunning or embracing it; tune in and hear this spiritual goal discussed in a sophisticated fashion.
Rabbi Safran is the author of “Meditations at 60: One Person, Under God, Indivisible,” which elaborates on this [“Called to be Different; Called to be Holy – A Meditation on Kashrut”] and related themes. Available from www.ktav.org or from the author at firstname.lastname@example.org.
