Bring Rabbi Gold into your community with the following stimulating talks.

THREE CREATION STORIES – What is reality? There are at least three different ways to understand the first verse of Genesis on how the universe was created. Three very different interpretations will lead us to three very different world views. Join Rabbi Gold for a discussion of science, philosophy, and Jewish mysticism in a search for reality.

THE KABBALAH OF LOVE – In Rabbi Gold’s newest book, a rabbi facing a midlife crisis of faith travels to Israel. There he meets an old acquaintance who teaches mathematics and physics by day, kabbala by night. He shares with the rabbi the moving story of a soul, and teaches him the true meaning of love.

DOES GOD BELONG IN THE BEDROOM? – Based on Rabbi Gold’s classic book, from a God’s eye point of view, to be human is not simply to be good but to be holy. Together we will build a ladder of holiness regarding sexual behavior. Where do non-marital sex, marital sex, and homosexuality fit on that ladder?

DO YOU HAVE TO LOVE YOUR FAMILY? – The Bible commands us to love God, love our neighbor, love the stranger, but nowhere are we commanded to love our family. What do we owe our parents, our siblings, our spouse, our children? What can we do to strengthen family life?

THE TEN JOURNEYS OF LIFE – Rabbi Gold’s inspirational self-help book on life decisions has been extremely well-received. An ancient tradition teaches that God tested our father Abraham with ten trials, ten journeys he had to travel. Each of us must travel these same ten journeys as we go through life. With Abraham as our mentor, we will learn the art of being human.

IS GOD TOO BUSY TO GIVE ME A BABY? – Rabbi Gold’s first book And Hannah Wept has become a classic in the Jewish community, giving a religious perspective on infertility and adoption. What can we learn from our Biblical patriarchs and matriarchs regarding infertility? What about contemporary medical techniques? Is adoption an option?
