I am Rabbi Lynn Claire Feinberg from Oslo, Norway.
I have opened this blog as a travellogue as I plan and set out on a tour through Europe – where I will meet friends and collegues. I leave Oslo with my car, by boat on May 5th, arriving in Kiel, Germany the next day. From Kiel I drive straight to Berlin – my first stop where I will spend the first shabbat with Cantor Jalda Rebling and artist Anna Adam. On shabbat afternoon I will lead a mincha gathering through songs and stories at Ohel ha Chidush. Follow me on my journey as I travel by car…
My vision is to create spaces for dialogue around what it might mean to live as a Jew in Europe today. I also want to introduce the concept of Aleph – Europe – what might a renewal of Judaism in Europe look like? How can we be Jewish in Europe – using the values of the cultures we live and Jewish spiritual practices to enrich our lives today!
This blog is also a way for me to share my musings on the qualities of the Tree of life as I count the Omer!
