June Book Group: Taking Miracles Seriously


Storyteller Rab­bi Zedek joins us to share his recent book Taking Miracles Seriously, a master course on how to craft an enriched and enriching spiritual life. It draws on a range of mate­ri­als—includ­ing bib­li­cal tales, Indi­an and Japan­ese folk­lore, the works of St. Augus­tine, Ein­stein, Isaac Bashe­vis Singer, and Grou­cho Marx—to take read­ers on a tru­ly orig­i­nal search for spir­i­tu­al sus­te­nance in every­day life. Learn how to iden­ti­fy and appre­ci­ate the mirac­u­lous in an often mun­dane world, how to take God seri­ous­ly when much of the intel­lec­tu­al world does­n’t, and how to make the most out of under­uti­lized spir­i­tu­al resources such as poet­ry and prayer.

Admission: $10; free for Members
