Courage by Bambi Rakhel Ward, 2003

Welcome to Judaism for the Soul

This website aims to inspire and nourish the soul of seekers who are yearning for a deep and meaningful connection to Judaism.

By learning mystical interpretations of Torah and Jewish festivals you can apply these teachings in your everyday life so you can live a more joyous and meaningful life.

Rakhel has started a new blog which can be found here. You may find this post about Crypto-Jews of particular interest.
