Sacred Hearing, Sacred Learning

By Rachel T. Sabath

CLAL: the National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, May 10, 1996

Rachel T. Sabath discusses the modern Jewish philosophy of listening to a multitude of voices, as a means to grow. The voices she refers to include God (as it is understood in tradition), the human voices of others (both Jews and non-Jews), as well as the voice of the self. She believes that "sacred hearing," or deeply listening to others, will lead to sacred learning and growing.
