Jewish Meditation: A Gateway to the Soul and Spiritual Life with Rabbi Darryl Crystal

Friday, March 3, 1:00 pm

Jewish meditation has been experiencing a revival. Authentically Jewish and rooted in the Torah, Jewish meditation grew in the time of the Rabbis and flourished in the Middle Ages through the teachings of Jewish mysticism.  Today, mediation helps us develop a “mindful” awareness of our souls and the world.  Meditation also provides a means for enriching our experiences during services.  By developing our inner life, we more openly relate to others and live with greater wisdom.  The workshop will introduce you to several forms of modern Jewish meditation.
