Watering the Soul in Times of Faith and Doubt

Part of our spring learning series, Relating to God

Monday, May 16, 2022, 2:00-3:30 ET

With Rabbi Mychal Springer, Manager of Clinical Pastoral Education at New York-Presbyterian Hospital in New York City and Adjunct Professor, JTS

The daily Amidah refers to God as “the One Who Brings Life to the Dead.” This paradox—the holding of life and death together—is central to a life of faith and often plunges people into doubt. We will make space for the “watering of the soul,” both metaphorically and through exploration of the connection between resurrection and water—in the form of rain and dew. 

If you have previously registered for another session in the Relating to God series (April 25–May 23), your registration admits you to all sessions in this series, and you may attend as many as you’d like.

Note: The Zoom link for this session will be in the confirmation email that you will receive after you register.


Relating to God

Join JTS scholars to explore what Jewish texts and thought can teach us about how we might understand, experience, and be in relationship with the divine.
