Adventure Rabbi Featured in USA Today

Boulder’s own Adventure Rabbi, Jamie Korngold, was featured in a March 24th  USA Today article, “God is found in the wilderness for Passover, Holy Week”.  The article brought together Rabbi Korngold with a minister and a scholar who together wrote a Christian-oriented book about finding spirituality in nature.

Here is an excerpt from the article by Kathy Lynn Grossman:

You can make yourself so breathless with wonder and exhaustion that you can’t say no to God, says Rabbi Jamie Korngold of Boulder, Colo.

“The author of God in the Wilderness, known as The Adventure Rabbi, will lead a Passover Seder dinner in the Utah desert next week so participants can experience firsthand the stark, gritty beauty of a desert setting like the one where much of the Exodus story takes place.

“Likewise for Easter: You can be so exhilarated and humbled on a ski run or snowshoe trail that there are no obstacles to total joy in Jesus’ Easter resurrection, say religion scholar Marcia McFee and Protestant minister Karen Foster, co-authors of Spiritual Adventures in the Snow.”
