Judaism as a Spiritual Practice

Teacher: Daniel Silverstein

Level: Open to All

Description: What is the legacy of Jewish wisdom and spiritual technology that we can harness to live the best possible life? In this course we will touch the depth and breadth of Judaism’s profound spiritual and mystical conversations, which span millennia and which shed a fascinating light on many of our contemporary individual and societal challenges.

We will study text, learn some of its historical and spiritual context, and experience for ourselves many of the spiritual practices suggested by our some of our greatest teachers. The course will include a built-in spiritual havruta (partner/buddy) component and will offer two simultaneous structural approaches to Jewish spirituality: living deeply with the calendar and the development of the Jewish spiritual conversation over millennia. Each class will also have a practice component
