Rabbi Marc’s A Dash of Drash – Yesod – Connection, Balance and #metoo: Episode 66

Yesod – Connection, Balance and #metoo with special guest Reverend Marie-Elsa Bragg in London is Episode 66 of A Dash of Drash.
This week is the sixth and penultimate week of the counting the Omer. It is Yesod, which is about foundation, connection, sexuality and integrity in relationship. We also end the third book of the Torah this week, Vayikra (Leviticus), with so many laws and rituals of purity, the body and blood. A woman priest and a male rabbi reflect on some of these themes in this painfully disturbing, confusing and empowering times of #metoo and more.
Reverend Marie-Elsa Bragg is an author and a priest and an old friend living in London.
