Deep Questions

10 Jul

 

In honor of Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi, who passed away a week ago on July 3, we are making available, for the first time online, the video version of an interview with him that was conducted for our program in 2007 by Shirley Steele (filmed by Liz McCutcheon).

Reb Zalman, as he was widely known, was (as was said in his obituary) “a spiritual revolutionary who infused religion and interfaith relations with a new vitality and contemplative depth.”

In this interview he talks about his family background, his religious journey, his feeling of connection to all who engage in what he calls the “dialogue of devoutness,” his pursuit of the deep questions of life and its meaning, and his work with the Spiritual Eldering Institute that he founded.

Please feel free to leave us a comment if you have any stories to relate about encounters you had with Reb Zalman.
