"Finding God in Isolation" 

Second Session: Thursday, January 14 at 8:30 PM (Zoom link below)
Rabbi Ariel Evan Mayse, PhD

This class will explore the contemplative practices of Hasidism as gateways to cultivating the inner world even in times of duress and upheaval. We will examine the themes of interiority in sermons, meditative techniques, and personal letters, and, with all this mind, we will consider the pathways of connection open to us even at present -- including re-envisioning ourselves as part of the greater community of nature.
