Ep. 62: Rabbi Tiferet Berenbaum loves to laugh. She also loves purple. She loves her husband, her family, her congregation (Shir Hadash -- http://www.shirmke.com/) and Milwaukee. In fact, if you talk with Rabbi Berenbaum for more than 3 seconds, you will realize that she's filled with love, laughter, terrific listening skills, and, as she puts it "a love of text."
Starting out as the only child of Black Southern Baptists (including a father who was blind), Rabbi Berenbaum slowly but surely found her true spiritual home in Judaism. Along the way, she had a front seat at the intersection of race, racism and religion, giving her valuable insights into how different groups of people see the World and helping her develop and refine tremendous powers of empathy.
Listen, as Rabbi Berenbaum describes her own conversion to her childhood, her conversion to Judaism, her views on and personal experiences with racism, and her views and thoughts on the challenges facing Judaism in the 21st Century.
