Adult Education with Rabbi Greene – Preparing Our Hearts, Minds, and Souls for the High Holidays
God as water
The metaphor of God as judge runs throughout the entire Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur liturgy. Although many people assume this is the primary metaphor for understanding God, our Bible provides us with many other ways of understanding God. These ancient but under used metaphors can help us reimagine the Divine that we can believe in. One such metaphor is God as water.
We shall study the metaphor God as water that our soul thirsts for.
