right for me. I wasn’t sure if I would stay with Shoresh, move on to try something else, or just stop
searching. Shoresh has been awesome.
the teachers questions. Boy, did we ask some questions. Some of my favorites were, “How and when do
astronauts celebrate Shabbat?” and “Why didn’t they just put Israel in South America?”
I’ve come to appreciate more and more the teachers who make Shoresh so enlightening. The teachers at
Shoresh have shared their passion for the subjects they study.
When there was conflict I would end up learning even more. One of our classes, for a reason that wasn’t
important, was taught by both Maryana Harouni and Rabbi Feld. Maryana presented her view on Purim,
full of historical context and analysis. Rabbi Feld’s rebuttal claimed that the importance of the story did not
rely at all in the historical details, and that most of the story was metaphorical. You can see what I’m talking
about when I say there was conflict.
Experiences like that taught me a valuable lesson. There is always another way to look at a situation, and
it is ridiculous to look at a situation in only one way or from one point of view, and to claim that you have
seen the whole truth.
Shoresh has really made a difference for me, as I will keep exploring what I have learned here.
