Meditation and Chanting Services (For adults - 2nd Shabbat of the Month, September - May, 10:00 a.m.)
Through Jewish chanting and meditation, experience your connection to the Unity of all that is. Find new personal meaning in words of Jewish prayer. Experience the peace of Shabbat and connect to your deeper spiritual self. Chanting provides a way to open your heart. Meditation brings a sense of inner peace and focuses attention on the present moment, the place where the Divine Presence can be experienced.
No prior experience with chanting or meditation is needed. If you already meditate, come see what the Jewish tradition has to offer to your practice.
