Mitzvot are tools for translating the ideals of tikkun hanefesh and tikkun haolam (healing person and planet) into a life-way of wisdom, compassion and justice. I engage with mitzvot as catalysts for spiritual innovation rather than fixed forms of religious imitation.

    “Rami Shapiro ignited our colleagues from across the movements to engage in frank discussion about the meaning and message of their rabbinate.”

  • Dr. Gordon Peerman

    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.
