Your Introduction to Jewish Spirituality
In this introductory 90 minute program, you will learn the basics of Jewish spiritual practices and become familiar with spiritual vocabulary: middot, hitbonenut, nefesh, ruach, neshama. We'll experience a visualization, chanting, and engage in text study. This program is recommended for beginners, or for those who might be engaging in Jewish spiritual practices (like meditation) but who want to learn more about Jewish teachings regarding the soul and our relationship with the Divine.
Some of the questions that will be answered are: What is special about Jewish spiritual practices? How does Judaism view the soul? What does Judaism say about holiness?
This class is limited to the first 15 registrants to foster an intimate environment.
