Reading new Torah in the Desert.

Adventure Rabbi Celebrates Passover in Moab with 250

The sky was blue, the sun was warm and the feeling of community and connection was palpable.

250 Jews from as far away as London and as close as Moab joined our Passover Seder in the desert. We snaked our way up the canyon, helping each other over and under rocks, past high canyon walls streaked with desert varnish.

Out here deep and engaging conversations occur, about what binds us and what sets us free, about who we are and who we want to be.

Our teens were thrilled to form our Torah Corps and were given the honor of carrying our new Torah into the desert. As Rabbi Jamie said, “It’s great that our Bar and Bat Mitzvah kids come, but to be honest they are required to be here. What really thrills me is the number of teens who opt to come back! That means we truly have something great going on.”

And it was not just teens who came. The 21-30 year olds came in such high numbers that they broke attendance records of years past. This, thanks to Elaine Barenblat’s successful launch of a new 20-30s program this year.

The Secret of Six

I love the connection of numbers and Torah. In macro-terms, Torah is the blueprint of the universe. What is the secret of six? According to the famous Passover song, Who Knows One?, one is God, two are the tablets, three are the forefathers, four are the matriarchs, five are the books of Torah, and six are the books of the Mishnah.
