Jewish Meditation for Educators

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This session will focus on using meditation as a tool for personal wellbeing and connecting or reconnecting Jewish educators with their own Jewish spiritual practice, which often (and ironically) gets lost while working in Jewish education. This session will also explore possibilities for adapting Jewish meditation exercises and practices for the classroom. Taught by leading Jewish meditation teacher, Alison Laichter, who loves teaching kids, tweens, and teens how to meditate, especially in a Jewish context, and whose favorite testimonial comes from Josh, a twelve-year-old hebrew school student: “This is a revolution!”
