Join Or HaLev for our
Yom Kippur Silent Meditation Retreat 5777
with Rabbi Dr. James Jacobson-Maisels and Daniel Yoel Cohen
October 10-12, 2016
Kibbutz Hannaton, Israel
Yom Kippur offers the powerful and concentrated possibility of atonement, the coming back into alignment with the soulful essence of who we are, of an honest and purified relationship with the Divine, self, and others. In this two-day retreat grounded in social silence, we will cultivate mindfulness and loving attention, and engage in chanting, prayer, and forgiveness to heighten our awareness of where we are in this precious life journey and open to the sacred potentials of the day. There will be instruction and guidance in meditation practice and teachings around the practice and the themes of the day. Traditional, egalitarian prayer services will be available, but are not a required part of the retreat.
The retreat, which will be taught in English with Hebrew translation as needed, will begin at 5pm on October 10 and finish after Yom Kippur is out.
