Ryan and I sat down to record this episode on September 11th, in the midst of the Jewish High Holidays. With this as our backdrop, we talk about the state of our democracy, our world, the challenges our communities are facing (from inside and out) and what we as individuals, who might be feeling lost in the middle of it all, can do about it. We also talk about how the lessons and traditions from the Jewish High Holidays (and really, most religious traditions) can help us crack our hearts open to find peace, community, forgiveness, and when we “miss our mark,” our way back to ourselves and those we might have alienated.
