Sacred Stories with Rabbi Heather Miller
Sacred Stories with Rabbi Heather Miller: Keeping It Sacred
Join us for an expansive conversation with Rabbi Heather Miller exploring inclusive Jewish community and claiming Judaism for ourselves. We discuss the power of having our own identities affirmed by those we love and honoring others through spiritual depth, openness, and joy! Rabbi Miller’s story reveals the humanness of trying to find our place. She reminds us that we share many more similarities than differences.
Rabbi Heather Miller invites us to consider:
~ How can we create spaces within the Jewish community that are welcoming to all people?
~ What are ways we can affirm those who may have different backgrounds than our own?
~ How can we strive to be creators of Judaism instead of consumers?
~ What do our own spiritual identities look like and feel like?
