Jesus was a Jewish mystic and wisdom sage living in first–century Roman occupied Judea. Awake to YHVH in, with and as all reality, Jesus taught a Judaism of justice and compassion in line with his near contemporary Hillel the Elder (110 BCE-10 CE). Jesus was crucified by Rome to demonstrate that power trumps love. Sadly for them, his death didn’t take. Sadly for us neither did his message. The religion of Jesus is Judaism. The religion about Jesus is Christianity. I include questions about Jesus and Christianity here because so many people ask them of me.

    Rabbi Rami is Jon Stewart’s spiritual double: hilarious and insightful, who wickedly exposes the religious insanities of our time while movingly offering an authentic interspirituality that is timeless.
