Among Jewish leaders, there seems to be serious cause for concern over the future of the Jewish faith. While the Western Wall in Jerusalem is meant to be a space for spiritual healing, it has also long been a site of chaos and conflict as conservative voices loudly oppose the equal presence of women in active ritual. Meanwhile, a significant percentage of young American Jews seem increasingly detached from the ancient Jewish traditions. Deeply involved in both of these issues, Rabbi Sharon Brous joins Welton on the show this week to discuss what it means to be “reanimating Jewish life through soulful religious and spiritual practice that is rooted in a deep commitment to social justice.” Rabbi Brous is the founding rabbi of IKAR in Los Angeles and is the first woman to be named “America’s Most Influential Rabbi” by the Daily Beast.
