In these trying times, it is hard to stay optimistic. In this Episode of Street Torah, I hit the streets to ask NYers if they're optimistic, and if so, how they stay hopeful when things get tough. I then sit down with my friend and colleague Rabbi Ezra Cohen to discuss Judaism's take on faith and optimism, especially as it relates to Teshuva and the tremendous opportunity we are given during the High Holidays to make positive change in our lives and in the world at large!To cultivate your own optimism and faith, and to really renew your soul this year, join MJE for the High Holidays!

STREET TORAH - Parshat Re'eh/ Free Will
The next episode of STREET TORAH with Rabbi Mark Wildes is here! In this episode, Rabbi Wildes goes to the streets to find out what New Yorkers think about the concept of "Free Will". Do our decisions actually matter? Do we really control our own fate, or is everything predetermined? He then sits down with MJE West Director Atara to really get into it, and the two have a very interesting philosophical discussion on free will and fate. **Disclaimer: This video ties to Parshat Re'eh, which we read LAST week. Our apologies; due to technical difficulties we were unable to post until now!**Posted by Rabbi Mark Wildes on Monday, September 18, 2017
