Bintel Brief: Rabbi Irwin Kula Answers Your Questions

Rabbi Kula

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

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 bintelblog@forward.com. Check the Forward’s Web site on Mondays this month for new installments of the Bintel Brief with Rabbi Kula dispensing his wisdom.
