Meditation of Presence – Sukkot

Jeffrey Kessler
Wednesdays – 8:15 am-9:00 am

Click here to join us on Zoom! 

For Sukkot, we will creatively engage with the traditional ritual of shaking the lulav, as a way of purifying the space around and within us.


Torah is our technology for encountering the Divine Presence. Silence provides a necessary space for that encounter. According to Jewish tradition, the Presence dwells continually within and around us, but we must learn deep listening to receive its generative wisdom. Shemah – in a word that sounds like an exhalation of breath,  we are directed to listen in order to understand the Divine Oneness. We are to open to this Oneness with all of our heart, our soul, our strength. We must listen to our bodies, our emotions, our thoughts, all that is deep within us.

Join us as we sit together in silence, after a brief teaching on meditation practice in connection either with the weekly Torah portion or where we find ourselves in the Jewish sacred calendar.
