A Journey into the Mysterious Land of Talmud
Rabbi Jim Bennett will lead us on a visit through the “Land of Talmud,” exploring its geography and terrain, meeting some of its people and tasting some of its sweet and bitter cuisine. Together, we will uncover some of the magic that has drawn generations of Jews to embark upon a journey of religious, practical and ethical Jewish discovery in the pages of this ancient, yet living rabbinic text.
A Love at the Center: An Exploration of Jewish Prayer, Mindfulness & Our Capacity to Love
Rabbi Andrea Goldstein will lead this class about how prayer is a spiritual practice designed to enhance the human capacity to love. Focusing on the Shema and its surrounding blessings, this class will explore liturgical expressions of love and offer guidance in meditation practices which deepen our capacity to receive and extend love.
Presented by the Jewish Mindfulness Center of St. Louis at Shaare Emeth
