Contemplative Shabbat – Saturday Morning

Join us for an in-person Shabbat service. Kiddish Lunch 12:30 pm, Care Circle 1:00 pm.

Janet Kalk and Jeffrey Kessler will be conducting Chochmat’s beautiful Contemplative Service, created by founding member Nan Gefen and Rabbi Jonathan Omer-man. The service follows the arc of the traditional morning Shabbat service in distilled form – with alternating periods of chant and silence, time for personal prayer, Torah teaching, and Mourner’s Kaddish.

This service will be followed by a Kiddish lunch and Chesed Care Circle, sponsored by Heart 2 Heart. This offering is free and in-person. No registration required. 

Janet Falk has been associated with Chochmat HaLev since 2006, when she started participating in Monday Night Meditation. She has been a regular meditator since that time and has co-led the monthly Contemplative Shabbat morning service for several years, along with Jeffrey Kessler. Janet has also served on the board of Chochmat HaLev, was the Board President for 2 years, and continues as chair of the High Holy Days Committee.

Jeffrey Kessler has been a spiritual seeker all his life. Coming from an interfaith background, his exploration of various spiritual traditions and psycho-physical systems has always been with an eye to ‘what is the common’ to all. As a life-long seeker of truth, he understands that the process of teaching effectively requires intentional exploration of what is still unknown in the landscape of the self. Jeffrey is a longtime practitioner and teacher of meditation, Tai-Chi, Chi Gung, and Mussar. His gentle presence is a foundational bedrock at Chochmat.
