Minna claims this little guy in our front yard will grow up to be a big tulip one day. . . Not too many signs of spring, yet, although it's been raining (a lot!) instead of snowing. The willow trees are starting to bud out. We went for our first walk in the local Nolde Forest in a long time (as a pre-Shabbat excercise and time for talk . . . muddy, but fun) . . . Before you know it, Pesach will be here!
I'm looking forward to more Spring, but I'll miss parts of the winter. It's mostly been a good one for me.
My name is Alan Abrams. I am a rabbi and a chaplain, as well as an educator of chaplains (supervisor in the Association of Clinical Pastoral Education). I'm also a doctoral student at NYU. I live in Jerusalem. I'm interested in what it means to be Jewish in a multi-faith world of chaplaincy and spiritual care. I'm interested in how people can be nurtured to become effective spiritual caregivers. I'm interested in finding out how I can become a person who can better Walk in the Way of God.
