Going Forward with Intention and Returning Home - A Six-Session Course in Jewish Mindfulness
As part of Mishkan Shalom’s Adult Education program, Rabbi Yael Levy will teach a six-session course in Jewish Mindfulness practice based on the teachings of the 16th and 17th century Jewish mystics. Participants in the class, “Going Forward with Intention and Returning Home,” will study the divine qualities of wisdom and understanding found in Torah texts, liturgy and Kabbalistic imagery. The course will also explore spiritual practices to tap into the deep roots of tradition for guidance in living. Prior knowledge or experience with mindfulness or mystical tradition is not necessary. Classes are held Wednesdays from Oct. 24 to Dec. 12 (no class Oct. 31 or Nov. 21) from 6:15pm to 8pm in the Mishkan Shalom library, 4101 Freeland Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19128.

More About Mishkan Shalom Synagogue
Mishkan Shalom is a Reconstructionist synagogue, seeking spiritual strength, a feminist reconstruction of Judaism, children as integral, the inclusion of homosexuals in the faith, and the pursuit of justice and peace -- in Philadelphia and the Middle East.
The Reconstructionist movement in Judaism focuses on community (instead of individuality) and active participation in the constant interpretation of the scriptures -- which guide, rather than govern.
For a deeper discussion, see the website or visit and speak with a rabbi.
The congregation also operates a school which serves more than 150 students.
