Jim Burklo was my (Rabbi Brian’s) first interview because this USC Dean of Religious Life is the father of many congregations running their own “resistance bible studies.” I want to grow up to be like Jim Burklo. He is smart, funny, serious when he needs to be. And, he has a great big heart. The kind that just makes you think, “I want to love people like he does it.”


Few problems are solved by an email your in-box.

This is an exception.

40 curiosity-satisfying, soul-nuturing messages (with a little spunk) from Rabbi Brian. Raw, honest, vulnerable reflections on faith/religion/spirituality. Without being dogmatic, pompous, or woo-woo. Or overly Jewy-McJewish.

Wonderful! You did it. Look for an email soon! (Unless you want to work on your patience, of course.)
