Jewish Living as the Cultivation of a Spiritual Practice

Yiscah will teach the inspiring and progressive ideas of Rabbi Kalonymous Kalman

Shapira, the Piaseczna Rebbe (d. 1943). She will discuss our inherent spiritual

awareness into a fuller mind, body and soul experience in our lives. Free,

contributions welcome.

Lech Lecha— Go to Yourself: Moving from One Self to Another Self

Yiscah will share a teaching on encountering the Divine presence within and

heeding her "still small voice." This session on moving away from a finite sense of

self toward a sense of self that is limitless and beyond ego will be followed by a

yoga session continuing these themes, led by Helaine Sheias. Sliding scale.
