"We Are All Reflections of the ONE: Bridging Distances Between Souls"

Rabbi Naomi Levy is the founder of Nashuva, a groundbreaking Jewish outreach community, based in Los Angeles.  During Week Seven she will weave tapestries of spiritual truth that reveal the spirituality of “Us” from a Jewish perspective.

A unique and passionate voice in the contemporary Jewish world, Naomi attended Cornell University, where she graduated Phi Beta Kappa and Summa Cum Laude.  She was in the first class of women to attend The Jewish Theological Seminary’s Rabbinical School and the first female Conservative Rabbi to head a pulpit on the West Coast. Through Nashuva, Naomi has drawn thousands of unaffiliated Jews back to Judaism with a soulful approach, linking together prayer, spirituality and social justice.  Rabbi Levy’s High Holidays Live webcast gives tens of thousands across the globe a chance to find uplift and deep meaning in Judaism.

Naomi is a best-selling author, has appeared on NBC’s Today Show and on Oprah, and has been featured in NPR, Parade, Redbook, Self, LA Times, Boston Globe, Good Housekeeping, and LA magazine.  Books authored by Naomi include To Begin AgainTalking to God; Hope Will Find You and Einstein and the Rabbi: Searching for the Soul (Winner of the 2017 Nautilus Prize).  Nashuva just released an album of prayers, featured in Billboard Magazine! and produced by Grammy Award winning music legend Don Was (Rolling Stones, Bonnie Raitt, John Mayer, Bob Dylan): Heaven on Earth: Songs of the Soul.

Newsweek included Naomi in its “Top 50 Rabbis in America” list, and the Jewish Forward listed Rabbi Levy as one of the nation’s 50 most influential Jewish leaders. Naomi and her husband Rob Eshman, former publisher of the LA Jewish Journal, have two children, Adin and Noa.
