Moving Torah

This month’s Sh’ma: A Journal of Jewish Responsibility brings the first Moving Torah video from Andrea Hodos, the founder and creator of Moving Torah, called “And Jacob Wrestled.” Enjoy.

After you watch the video you should read the whole issue—which is about metaphor in all its religious and linguistic complexity. (Okay, some of its complexity.) For JSers keeping count, Danya Ruttenberg has a piece in the issue, as do I.

"I may attack a certain point of view which I consider false, but I will never attack a person who preaches it. I have always a high regard for the individual who is honest and moral, even when I am not in agreement with him. Such a relation is in accord with the concept of kavod habriyot, for beloved is man for he is created in the image of God." —Rav Joseph Soloveitchik
