Dreams & Direction
When should we follow our dreams, and when do we say it’s “just a dream”? Let’s explore where inspiration from a lifelike dream can take us. Plus: a time-honored Jewish routine for keeping nightmares at bay.
Stars & Signs
Judaism insists we can always influence our destiny for the better. Yet, the popular “Mazel tov” wish literally means “good astrology”! What role does destiny play in a tradition that believes humans have free choice?
Jinx & The Evil Eye
Can telling someone about my good fortune make it go bad? Can their jealousy create problems for my success? It may sound superstitious, but in Jewish thought, there’s a logical reason to be concerned about “the Evil Eye,” and there’s a practical way to ward it off.
Para & Normal
Most people believe in some version of a soul. Do souls continue to exist after death? Can they see us? Is there other intelligent life out there in the universe? What are angels and demons, do we believe in them, and how concerned should I be of their presence? In this lesson, we will explore what we know about angels, spirits, and extraterrestrial life for insights into our own soul’s nature.
