The theology of the High Holidays teaches us that God sits on a throne on high, ruling over us and judging our actions from above. We believe that our prayers, supplications, and repentance will sway God toward a merciful ruling, looking leniently upon our transgressions over the past year and judging us favorably for the year ahead. But what if we’ve been looking at the theology of the High Holidays through a misunderstood lens? What if the theology of the High Holidays teaches us something radically different, even opposite of what we have come to believe? Please join Rabbi Steigmann on Saturday morning, 9/23 to explore A (Re)New(ed) High Holiday Theology.

Moishe Steigmann, The Mindful Rabbi, is the founder and director of a non-profit organization, Own Your Judaism. Through his organization, he creates easeful, joyful, and social programming for anyone who wants to experience Judaism. He also speaks, hosts livestream conversations, and offers Jewish Life Coaching and organizational consultation. An ordained rabbi with a masters in education, he has been the rabbi of two synagogues, one community Jewish day school, and one Jewish camp. Specifically, Rabbi Steigmann is thrilled to return to his family and friends at WJC, where he spent six years from 2006-2012 as the Assistant Rabbi and Associate Rabbi.

Born and raised in Milwaukee, Rabbi Steigmann is a proud father of two children, Matan and Yael, loves sports, is passionate about living gratefully, and enjoys almost all puzzles and games.
