The Podcast "Everything is Connected" was launched in 2017.
In each episode, creative director and host Jonathan Blake welcomes a guest (or guests) to the show and opens up a conversation about the spiritual dimension of human life - the "worlds within" that we rarely see or even talk about. Through conversation we come to discover that even as our spiritual development makes us the people we ultimately become, so too does our path through the world shape the life of the spirit.
Jonathan Blake is the spiritual leader and Senior Rabbi of Westchester Reform Temple in Scarsdale, New York.
A graduate summa cum laude of Amherst College (1995) and ordained from HUC-JIR (Cincinnati, 2000), Blake is a noted speaker, singer, and commentator on Jewish text and Jewish life. He has been featured in the New York Times, GQ Magazine, on CNN, and in the acclaimed HBO/Cinemax documentary films 51 Birch Street and 112 Weddings.
He has contributed to the online columns "Ten Minutes of Torah" and "Reform Voices of Torah," and the books My Jewish Year (Abigail Pogrebin, 2016), Prayers of Awe: Encountering God (ed. Hoffman, 2016), and Text Messages: A Torah Commentary for Teens (ed. Salkin, 2012).
He and his wife, performing artist Kelly McCormick, reside in Westchester County, New York.
"Everything is Connected" is produced by Justine Daum. Our title music is "Down in the River to Pray" as recorded by the Pete Malinverni Trio.
