Spiritual Activism: From Confusion to Liberation

By Claudia Horwitz

Reconstructionist Rabbinical Association (RRA), Fall 2003

This piece recounts the author's journey from spiritual confusion to spiritual activism. The author begins by elaborating on her post-college experience and how it led her to reevaluate her life and the importance of spirituality. She highlights her curiosity about the role of spiritual life and the compound identity of American Jews to understand the idea of spiritual activism. The author argues that when Jews are willing to see the depth of the paradox through which they live, they will be able to have a more creative response to problems in the world. The author concludes by affirming that it is possible for Jews to live lives where their values are manifested in their daily actions that can promote welfare for all.
