God… Then and Now

Most people I know say they’ve never discussed their beliefs in God with family members. I still don’t know what my parents or brother believe when it comes to a higher power. I can tell you their favorite movies, foods, and jokes, but I have no idea if they pray. I realize the topic is personal, but the very act of trying to articulate our feelings might help define them. That’s why we at 614 have asked Jewish women to express how their beliefs about God have evolved over the years. We hope this issue will encourage you to think about your own beliefs and perhaps share them with someone else.
