WELCOME TO TORAH-VEDA

Torah and Veda are two ancient sources of spirituality still vibrant today. Torah is conveyed through the sacred language of Hebrew and Veda is conveyed through the sacred language of Sanskrit. The focus here is on meditation, mysticism, philosophy, psychology and the underlying spirituality that has been incorporated into religions, and not as much on the religions themselves. Your comments and posts are welcome.

Quote of the Week 155 - The Holy, the Unholy, and the Not Yet Holy

Open Orthodoxy “does not mean Orthodox-lite,” he says. “It is following the law but seeing the importance of the outside world: To paraphrase [the early 20th century] Rabbi Kook, there is no such thing as the ‘unholy, there is only the holy and the not yet holy. The study of English, the study of chemistry, the study of art, all have the potential to be consistent with kedusha, to be holy.”


--From a Moment magazine article by Sarah Breger in the November/December 2010 issue regarding Rabbi Avi Weiss and his ordination of the first Open/Modern Orthodox female rabba, Sara Hurwitz
