JW3 and Limmud partner to bring you unexpected and surprising Jewish wisdom online.
In this 30-minute bite-size series, educators from across the Jewish community will share some of their favourite pieces of Jewish wisdom.
This week's guest is Adam Zagoria-Moffet, the rabbi of St. Albans Masorti Synagogue. He was ordained from the Jewish Theological Seminary in New York where he also received an MA in Jewish Thought, studying the political philosophy of Rabbi Yehudah Ashlag (Ba'al haSulam). He grew up in Phoenix, Arizona, and has lived in Minnesota, New York, and Israel before moving to the UK. He co-edited the first Hebrew/English egalitarian Sepharadi siddur and runs the independent publisher Izzun Books. He often teaches about Sepharadi halakhah and culture as well as mysticism, mythology and ethics. He lives in St. Albans with his family.
