Goodbye Dr. Ruth; Hello, Rabbi Irwin Kula

Last month, we re-launched the Forward’s famed Bintel Brief advice column with the legendary Ruth Westheimer answering readers’ questions on our Web site. Now, Dr. Ruth is handing over the Bintel Brief’s reins to our next guest advice columnist, Rabbi Irwin Kula. President of CLAL-The National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, Kula was featured in the public television special “The Hidden Wisdom of Our Yearnings,” which was based on his latest book, “Yearnings: Embracing the Sacred Messiness of Life” (Hyperion, 2006).

Are you facing a Jewish dilemma, a spiritual crisis or family woes? Could you use a little advice? Send questions for the Bintel Brief to Check the Forward’s Web site on Mondays this month for new installments of Kula dispensing his wisdom.
