Jews Without Judaism

I was not raised Jewish.  In order to live a rich Jewish life, I’ve lived in some of the most Jewish areas of the world: Jerusalem, Rockland County in New York and the Fairfax district of Los Angeles.

Currently I live in Kirkland, a suburb of Seattle.  There are no synagogues and no organized Jewish life in Kirkland, but there are plenty of Jews.

While I enjoy living in Kirkland, I miss living in an area in which Jewish life is vibrant.

Admittedly, I feel a sense of loss when I listen to local Christians speak about their involvement in their respective churches and many local Jews have a limited association with Judaism.

Admittedly, I am disappointed when I see local churches and mosques being built, but no synagogues.

Admittedly, I am disheartened when I see many local Jews find spiritual fulfillment in other religions.

Sadly, within Kirkland there are many Jews and very little Judaism.

I started mobilerabbi because I want unaffiliated Jews to become connected to Judaism.

I am committed to perpetuating a Jewish community which is inclusive, supportive of Israel, dedicated to improving our world, encourages progressive Jewish worship and practice and promotes serious Jewish learning for all ages.

In a world which is 99.9% not Jewish, I consider myself very blessed and lucky to be Jewish.

I want to share my love of Judaism with others.  You’re welcomed to join my spiritual journey.
