Episode Description:

Welcome, everyone, to our insightful journey through the Torah portion of Bereshit, where we embark on the exciting path of starting anew. As we open the Torah again to the book of Genesis, we’re not just reading ancient texts; we’re reawakening our spiritual selves, challenging our routines, and setting the stage for a year of growth and transformation. Rabbi Jian invites you to dive deep into the creation story, exploring the profound lessons of Adam and Eve, the power of speech, and the importance of resetting our spiritual compass. This class isn’t about dwelling on past achievements or mistakes; it’s about embracing the opportunity to begin afresh, with joy, love, and a readiness to elevate our lives.
