Rabbi Susan Talve spoke to Connections about a wide variety of topics. I will attempt to summarize a few here, though I cannot do her justice in my summary.
Here is some information about Rabbi Susan Talve, and the Central Reform Congregation from their website:
"Central Reform Congregation, a Reform Jewish congregation in St. Louis, Missouri, represents the coming together of a diverse and inclusive group of individuals who accept the responsibility of maintaining a community of respect and friendship.
Through the study of Jewish texts, both ancient and modern, we join together to address questions relevant to the quality of our lives and the lives of all humankind. We maintain an active commitment to tikkun olam, the repair of the world, through social change and social responsibility projects. Central Reform provides a home for us and for our children in which we strive to create an environment of warmth, caring, growth and commitment.
As the only Jewish congregation in the City of St. Louis, CRC has grown to more than 750 households since our founding in 1984. We are a community sharing an ongoing search for Jewish answers to fundamental life questions in a manner in which members and guests can find healing and inspiration.
As a diverse and inclusive community, we seek equal roles for men and women and welcome members of interfaith backgrounds, Jews by choice, members of the gay and lesbian community, singles, and people of all ages. With a commitment to people paramount, member participation is a fundamental cornerstone of our philosophy." http://www.centralreform.org/
