Albert Einstein was once the most famous person on the planet. Today his work remains integral to scientific study, to the physics of our world, and to the way we conceptualize our very existence. His quotes on all subjects litter the walls of college dorms and university classrooms but there is one quote that is unlike any other, a letter in response to a grieving father that had just lost his son.

In Einstein and the Rabbi: Searching for the Soul, Rabbi Naomi Levy dives into the mystery of what prompted one of the greatest scientific minds in history to write so eloquently about the human condition and what it says about our own interconnectedness. Rabbi Levy joined Just the Right Book Podcast to take us on this journey of discovering other dimensions of Einstein and the backstory of this grieving father.

As Roxanne puts it, "What it really does is help us think about what that space is that some people have found with religion, some people look for in various versions of spirituality and she does a great job of helping us think about this notion of the soul in a wider way."

Also in this episode, we hear what some of the folks in New Haven are reading.
