Have you noticed an increased awakening or interest towards Judaism from non-Jews? Is that something that you’ve seen in your corner of the world? And could it be connected to a Messianic Era? How? You’re listening to Jewish Latin Princess, I’m Yael Trusch, your Host, welcome to the show. Today we get to talk about redemption. But, we arrive at it from a unique angle, as we explore it the context of the increased interest the non-Jewish world has in Torah and Judaism. And to elaborate more on that we have the fabulously eloquent Dr. Rivka Lambert Adler. But before I bring her on, I want to first wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!

Now let’s go to the review section of iTunes. But, before I do that, I have to send a public apology to one of my listeners and reviewers whose date I totally missed. I was really looking forward to our date and somehow my calendar got messed up and I missed our scheduled time. So Danielle, if you’re listening, I sent you an email already, but shoot me an email back and we’ll try to set that up again.
Ok, so let’s hope that doesn’t continue to happen. I definitely have been having some iCloud issues both my calendar and with my computer storage. Very frustrating. Anyhoo, let’s pick a reviewer of the week:
This review comes from fun game, lots of issues – that’s a funny itunes name. She titles this review Hooked and says, “I’ve only listened to a few shows, but I’m hooked. I love the topics Yael addresses and her eloquence in speaking about them. She gets to the core of issues that are facing Jewish women universally.”
Well thank you fun game, lots of issues. I hope you stick around and binge listen cuz indeed there are a ton of great episodes. Send me an email yaelatjewishlatinprincess and we’ll set up a time to connect and chat over the phone.
And now for my guest today. First of all this is a different kind of interview. I don’t think we’ve really ever covered this topic before – perhaps somewhat with Genie Milgrom, but not really, this is quite unique. I have Dr. Rivkah Lambert Adler. She is the author of Ten From The Nations: Torah Awakening Among Non-Jews. She is a writer and adult Jewish educator with a special interest in geulah, and in the non-Jewish awakening to Torah happening in our days. Did you know about this? I’m sure you did on some level, but today you get to learn about it more in depth.
Of course, the question is why focus on this when arguably amongst us, the Jews, there’s still so much work to be done when it comes to Torah true education. You will love her take on it. Has there been controversy around Dr. Lambert Adler’s work and how does she take it? When one educates non-Jews about Torah, how do you bridge the gap between normative Christian thinking that regards the Bible as the Tanach primarily, and Judaism which regards the Bible as BOTH the written and oral Torah, and as inseperable. That would seem like a major bridge to cross. Let’s see what she says. This and so many beautiful and interesting insights from Dr. Rivkah Lambert Adler…
