In this episode, we sit down with R’ Bortz to break down all things Tishrei, High Holidays, Teshuva, the Shofar, the Sukkah, the dancing with the Torah, developing a connection with our Creator, and going all in on the opportunities we have as Jews to go into 5783 with the right momentum to take our lives and the lives of those around us to the next level. 

Originally from South Africa and raised in San Diego, Rabbi Bortz brings a fresh approach to Jewish philosophy, Jewish mysticism and Jewish rituals.

He is the Founder of Jteen of San Diego, an organization dedicated to educating and empowering teenagers, and then created SOUL X, an organization offering experiential events for adults to foster deep soul connection.

Rabbi Bortz is truly a Millennial Rabbi – he loves sports and music, practices Brazilian “Jew” Jitsu, and lives everyday with the mission of infusing ancient Jewish wisdom with today’s culture, viewing every moment as an opportunity for personal growth and the elevation of our surroundings for a greater Divine purpose.

You can find Rabbi Bortz on Instagram @millenialrabbi, on all podcast platforms as the host of the “Beneath the Surface” podcast (also the title of his book you can find on Amazon)
