    Story
    "Wisdom from a humble master"

    Rabbi Steinsaltz offers his perspective on Jewish identity, both for those looking in from the outside and self-identified Jews who oftentimes find little to distinguish themselves from the greater American society. Are Jews a civilization, a religious expression, a race, an ethnicity...? More than just his declaration that Jews are, in fact, a family (with all of the baggage and value that are attached to that definition), Rabbi Steinsaltz's wisdom emerges from his particular love for every type of family member - even those who have been pushed away or pushed themselves away from living a distinctly Jewish life.

    "Steinsaltz makes me smile"

    Adin Steinsaltz is a great genius with a warm heart and in impish sense of humor that made me smile through this charming talk. He has an interesting quality of appearing to meander, until you realize that he is going right to the point.
