Spiritual wisdom meets positive psychology, showing that the examined life is not an unhappy one.
Rabbi Evan Moffic is a very inspirational speaker. He was able to relate to the interfaith intergenerational community in an inspirational, humorous, and eloquent manner. His stories from the Torah helped bridge the faiths together and build bridges and break down fences.
When choosing a speaker for our Jewish Culture & Traditions Lunch ‘N Learn, we wanted someone who could reach an interfaith corporate crowd, while still delving thoroughly into the rich cultural background and religious beliefs of the Jewish people. From the moment Rabbi Evan Moffic stepped in front the crowd, we knew that we had chosen the right speaker. He was not only a knowledgeable presenter, but an extremely engaging storyteller. Rabbi Moffic handled the material with thoughtfulness and humor, and left many wishing they could spend the entire afternoon with him.
His elucidation is profound, and his stories, beyond charming. But what makes this a priceless work is that Moffic, senior rabbi of Congregation Solel in Highland Park, draws deeply from his pastoral role in the trenches of life —it’s messy, it’s wrenching, and sometimes it’s simply beautiful. His words ring with authenticity. Moffic is the rabbi we’d love to call our own — wise and kind, humble and good beyond words.
Like Rabbi Harold Kushner (When Bad Things Happen to Good People), he draws examples from everyday life to illuminate essential Jewish concepts for people of all faiths.
Rabbi Evan Moffic masterfully invokes ancient Jewish wisdom to help us find happiness in our modern world.
Evan Moffic is a rabbi; but he’s also an extraordinary scholar, and a teacher of the highest order. He can speak to us all, whatever our faith or culture. And he does it with grace, humor, and erudition. Such a guy.
Few people have the heart, empathy, compassion and communication skills that Rabbi Moffic possesses and uses so effectively in teaching, uplifting, consoling and guiding people through their life’s journey.
