Sh’ma Koleynu – Hear our voice

by | Oct 1, 2009 | Podcasts

Join Rabbi Sheila Weinberg in contemplating Sh’ma Koleynu – Hear our voices.  This is the reverse of Sh’ma Yisrael, when our plea to hear is directed to ourselves; here, Sh’ma is directed towards the source of mercy and compassion – Adonai Eloheinu.  It is a communal project to ask God to hear our voices – the inchoate layers of feeling, need, hope – that join together and become our communal offering.  We are asking for divine presence, love, and support.
