Rabbi Mark Biller to Conduct Fascinating Series: 'Where's My Miracle?'


Does G-d recognize each feather that drops from each sparrow, as Jewish tradition contends? Do our actions influence G-d's decisions about our lives? Is G-d making decisions about our lives?

These are among the issues participants will explore in a provocative three-session workshop, called "Where's My Miracle?" led by Rabbi Mark Biller. The lively exchanges, which are free of charge, will be held at noon on Wednesdays, Feb. 6 (snow date Feb. 13), Feb. 27 (snow date March 5) and March 13 (snow date March 15), in the Morris County Library downstairs small conference room, 30 E. Hanover Ave., Whippany.

The workshops are being sponsored by National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW), West Morris Section, under the auspices of Our Jewish World, co-chaired by Ellen Nesson and Melanie Levitan, both of Morristown.

"You may well be surprised at the range of opinions offered on these and similar questions by our traditional sages," says Rabbi Biller. "Learn what classic Jewish texts say about this subject, and add your thoughts to the conversation."

Rabbi Biller specializes in the art of storytelling, and counseling Jews of all ritual levels looking to find meaning in both modern life and rich Jewish traditions. The spiritual leader of synagogues in his native Canada, as well as in Alabama, New York and New Jersey, the rabbi received rabbinic ordination from the Jewish Theological Seminary. He also studied BiblioDrama with Peter Pitzele at the Union Theological Seminary, and completed a two-year Spiritual Direction course at Elat Chayyim, designed to help participants teach others how to identify and follow their own spiritual paths.

The National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW) is a grassroots organization of volunteers and advocates who turn progressive ideals into action. Inspired by Jewish values, NCJW strives for social justice by improving the quality of life for women, children, and families and by safeguarding individual rights and freedoms.          

Space is limited, so pre-registration is requested. To register for the thought-provoking "Where's My Miracle?" sessions, please e-mail

In fact, it hasn’t been mentioned since the Season Five finale when Jon Snow reveals this discovery to Sam Tarly. Jon has cared about little more than the war between the living and ...
