Thanks to all those who made the above retreat so powerful. I’m already looking forward to sitting and learning with you again.

Please see here for details of our weekly Or HaLev Jerusalem sitting group, every Sunday evening (8-9.30pm).

And please see here for details of our next mini-retreat, every fourth Friday (9am-2pm).

Both are open to everyone – including absolute beginners!

Please contact me here for further questions.

Some of the venues I’ve taught meditation include: Or HaLev retreats and classes, The Pardes Institute of Jewish StudiesHomestead Jerusalem, Moishe House JerusalemStanford University, Stanford Hillel, Moishe House LondonLimmud NYIsabella Freedman Jewish Retreat Center, Yeshivat Shvilei haTorah, Yeshivat Ma’ale GilboaYeshivat Chovevei Torah Rabbinical SchoolCongregation Beth Am and my own retreats in my home village of Beit Zayit.

My speciality is integrating mindfulness with normative Judaism, helping people of varied levels of knowledge and experience to discover the richness and authenticity of a living, breathing Judaism. This involves both text-based, discursive learning and practical, experiential learning. In short, I teach that Judaism demands of us, and enables us, to work for greater compassion and self-awareness. Through this work, all aspects of Judaism, and of life, come into clearer focus.

I’ve been privileged to learn from many of the most respected teachers in the world of Jewish meditation, including Rabbi David and Shoshana Cooper and Rabbi James Jacobson-Maisels.

I have also completed the Jewish Mindfulness Meditation Teacher Training Course, taught by Rabbis Sheila Peltz WeinbergJeff Roth and Jordan Bendat-Appell. The course, which I highly recommend, is a 16-month journey through many kinds of meditative and pedagogical practices, and is a collaboration between the Institute for Jewish Spirituality and the Awakened Heart Project.
