Religion Outside The Box

Rabbi Brian reframes religion to be approachable. And, fun.

RABBI BRIAN

While I had rational explanations at the time as to why I was going to rabbinical school, none really satisfied. Why would rational, humanist from New York City who never believed in God do such a thing? 

After leaving organized religion, I became a high school mathematics teacher and learned the importance of patience, positivity, compassion, and having someone believe in you.

Incorporating these lessons with wicked amounts of honesty, I started a blog to share the answers I found, and my stuggles finding them. 

My thought pieces became The 77% Weekly Newsletter — helping a few thousand readers, 40/52 weeks a year prioritize their spiritualigious lives.

Now, just past 50 years old, I know why I became a rabbi—because starting a religious revolution works better when you are an iconoclast with a good title.

RELIGION OUTSIDE THE BOX

Religion Outside The Box is a different way of thinking about religion.

Religion Outside The Box wants to empower you to lead on your spiritualigious live.

Religion Outside The Box is filled with folk who feel somewhat chaffed by organized religion.

Religion Outside The Box only uses the G.O.D. word to refer to (the) God (of your understanding). Nothing more. Nothing less.

Religion Outside The Box has 1,000’s of memebers all over the world. None of whom have all the answers.

Religion Outside The Box is made up of Jews, non-Jews, Catholics, ex-Mormons, a bunch of Canadians, and even a few lawyers. Many members never thought they would have a rabbi in their lives.

Religion Outside The Box is kinda cool. And, I’m glad you’re here.

Why not lean (just a little) in and have (just a touch of) surrender/faith/joy? ...

Me and the lovely za’tar chicken dinner I made last night. ...

Thanks, @Alisha for making this. ...
