Saturday Morning Meditation

Hebrew Text: “Happy are those who dwell in your house.”

“Happy are those who dwell in your house.”

The Talmud (Mishnah Berakhot 5:1 (30b) says that the chasidim rishonim (early pious ones) used to meditate for an hour before prayer so that they might concentrate their thoughts on God.

 

Please join us for a half hour of meditation before services.
We meet weekly on Shabbat mornings from 9:00 – 9:30 a.m. for silent meditation.
