Radical Hasidic Ideas & Practices
with Rabbi Daniel Silverstein

(there will be no class on March 28 & April 4 in observance of Passover)


All classes will meet via Zoom. Zoom link provided upon registration.  Classes will not be recorded for later viewing.

What are the transformative ideas and practices with which the early Hasidic Masters created a mass-movement, and changed the lives of millions of people? 
Join us as we explore the revolutionary lives and teachings of these Masters, and support each other in bringing their radical spiritual and psychological insights into every aspect of our lives. 

Our learning and practice will be guided by tradition, scholarship and the relevant insights of the contemporary mindfulness world.


Note: This course is a continuation of a course that met in November and December. Our first class on Sunday, March 7 will include a review of the practices we learned in the fall. The remainder of classes will introduce new practices and concepts. 

Avodah Shebalev (Service of the Heart):  Jewish Prayer and Liturgy

With Rabba Dorothy Richman
8 Thursdays, March 11 - May 13 2021, 3-4:15pm EST

(there will be no class on March 25 & April 1 in observance of Passover)

All classes will meet via Zoom. Zoom link provided upon registration.  Classes will not be recorded for later viewing.

Prayer, according to the rabbis of the Talmud, is avodah shebalev, the service of the heart. Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel calls prayer  “a microcosm of the soul.” How can a book filled with prayers other people wrote be a pathway to the individual, idiosyncratic Jewish soul? At each session, we will explore a prayer from the siddur (Jewish prayer book), looking to see where the words came from, what they mean, and whether/how they work.  Sometimes, we'll sing them, too. 

Note: This course is a continuation of a course that met in November and December. Students who are continuing will learn new material. New students welcome!
