When Rabbi Naomi Levy came across a letter Albert Einstein wrote, it forever altered the way she interpret the meaning of life.

Einstein's touching prose encapsulated the connection between the universe and the individual. From that letter, Rabbi Levy began her search into the physicist's interpretation of the human soul.

What can we discover from science on religion and humanity? Larry Mantle talks with Rabbi Levy about lessons on empathy, connection, and faith from the world's most famous scientist.

Guest:

Naomi Levy, author of many books, including her latest, “Einstein and the Rabbi” (Flatiron Books, 2017); founder and leader of NASHUVA, a Jewish spiritual outreach movement based in L.A.
