I’m the rabbi of Tzedek Chicago. (You can read a longer bio here.)
I began this blog in 2010 to post musings on religious and spiritual issues. At the time, I envisioned it as a compliment to my other blog, Shalom Rav, which was concerned primarily with contemporary social and political issues. Over the years, the content of Yedid Nefesh has become more exclusively focused on my liturgical and poetic writings, much of which I use in my congregation.
