Stories: The Incredible Power of a Story to Change Lives

Hosted By: Valley Beit Midrash

The Judaism of the 21st century demands that we each become compelling and thrilling storytellers. Could you imagine a world without a creation narrative that experiences order in the universe, that looks at a rainbow and sees a promise of life, stories filled with real struggles of fathers and sons, brothers, husbands and wives? At our core is the story of slavery and liberation so powerful that it still motivates freedom fighters around the world. Suddenly, we are standing at Mt Sinai promising to be partners in a covenant, a sacred priestly nation that will transform the world in which we live. Our story takes us to the edge of the promised land described in the book of Deuteronomy, a land in which the king is just and the people righteous and caring of each other and where the widow and orphan and stranger is protected. Our prophets motivate us to “do justice, love mercy and walk humbly with God” and comfort us in our pain, giving meaning to our suffering. Each generation added richness, a veritable treasure chest of stories. Every generation has its own stories, from Genesis to the most recent events in the 21st century. Discover them all.
