She Who Dwells Within: Shechinah, the Feminine Face of Gd in Torah, Mysticism, and Our World

January 21, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm



ABOUT THIS LECTURE: Join us for a sumptuous study of the divine feminine as she appears
in the Jewish tradition from ancient times to today. We will attempt to understand her through Hebrew texts, images of beauty and suffering, and as she emerges on the world stage in our own day.


ABOUT THIS SPEAKER: Rabbi Tirzah Firestone, PhD, is a Jungian psychologist, author, and the founding rabbi of Congregation Nevei Kodesh in Boulder, Colorado, a Jewish Renewal community dedicated to a passionate renewal of Judaism in the 21st century. Ordained by Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi in 1992, Rabbi Firestone became a leader in the Jewish Renewal Movement and lectures and teaches widely on the confluence of Kabbalah and psychology and the reintegration of feminine wisdom tradition within Judaism.
Rabbi Firestone earned her doctorate in depth psychology in 2015 with a focus on the healing of intergenerational Jewish trauma. She is the author of With Roots in Heaven, a spiritual memoir; The Receiving: Reclaiming Women’s Wisdom, about the feminine Kabbalah; and a best selling audio set, Women’s Kabbalah. Her newest book, Wounds Into Wisdom: Healing Intergenerational Jewish Trauma, will be released in the spring of 2019. Rabbi Firestone and her husband David live outside of Boulder, Colorado. Together they have three grown children.
