The God Gap

What happens when the way we talk about God no longer works? Eliana Light looks at how the ways we think and talk about God as kids can limit–and sometimes even cut off–that very important relationship as we grow older and life becomes more complicated. Eliana makes a suggestion for how can we help our kids, and all of us, to create dynamic and lasting relationships with the Divine.

Eliana Light is the Director of Music Education at Park Avenue Synagogue. She has put out two albums of original Jewish music, A New Light and Eliana Sings (About Jewish Things!). Her songs have been featured on PJ Library compliations and are used by educators, song-leaders, and clergy all over the country. Eliana has performed and taught throughout the United States, including at the Union for Reform Judaism Biennial, the NewCAJE Jewish Education Conference, Limmud New York, and the DeLeT Masters Program. She is also the author of Hebrew in Harmony, a curriculum published by Behrman House that teaches prayer and Hebrew through music. Eliana received her Masters in Jewish Experiential Education from the Jewish Theological Seminary in 2016.
