This podcast is for people who are interested in Out-of-the-Box Judaism -- whether Jewish or not. What does out of the box mean? Out-of-the-Box can mean… thinking outside the box. Many people have an impression or idea of what it means to be Jewish or what you have to do to be Jewish or what you have to believe to be Jewish. Out-of-the-Box can mean thinking outside the box of preconceived notions and creating the Jewish experience that is right for you. Out-of-the-Box can mean… being outside of the synagogue. Many people feel that joining or going to a synagogue doesn’t fulfill their desire for a deeper connection. Out-of-the-Box can mean finding and creating meaningful spiritual experiences on your own, with your family, or with a community that is not based in a synagogue. Out-of-the-Box can mean… unpacking your heritage. If you or someone in your family is Jewish, you have a box of hand-me-downs and treasures waiting to be unpacked. Out-of-the-Box can mean examining those contents, understanding them, and choosing which ones you want to keep, and which ones you don’t.

I can’t wait to share!
Out of Box Judaism is a wonderful podcast to share with family and friends. The storytelling takes you on a learning adventure that is a joy to hear, and a wonderful way to learn history and traditions. What a lovely break to a hectic day. Relax and enjoy!
Esther Goldenberg does a lovely job weaving readings of the Torah with everyday insights in the podcast. Add in interesting interviews and an engaging, down-to-earth voice, and I’m sold! A wonderful way to break out of the normal routine and being thoughtful conversation to the dinner table. Check it out - you won’t be sorry!
Just what I've been looking for!
Finally! Thank you, Esther Goldenberg! I've been wanting to study the portion of the week for years now, and NOW I feel like I have what I've been looking for: a summary of the portion AND a story to go along with it. Thank you! What a GIFT!
