A Thousand Kisses Deep: Four Voices That Fell In Love With God

Both the Hebrew Bible and the Jewish liturgical tradition ensure that God’s love for the Jewish people is abundant and abiding, even when the human love reflected back is often partial, fleeting, or absent altogether. In this session, we will encounter four Jewish voices–the book of Deuteronomy, Maimonides, Yehuda Amichai, and Leonard Cohen–who teach us about the various longings of the human heart for the Divine.
