Where do we stand

After seven years in operation, we took a break from having classes so that Meir could devote his time to writing his book about Jewish Consciousness. We continued to hold a series of online meditation sessions for our old members as well as many new acquaintances. Since these are not accompanied with text work, we offered them without payment. Our society has over 380 members, open to anyone who has joined any of our classes.

Our Goals for our eighth year

Meir is excited about his writing project, but because of his conscientiousness, he will need at least another year to finish it.

We will still offer weekly meditation sessions, as well as occasional classes via Zoom for special topics, such as the holidays. We also hope to meet in person on a more regular basis, hopefully in our new home in Efrat.

Long-term goals and dreams

  • To continue to develop interconnectivity between our members,
  • To continue developing and expanding a program for training teachers of Jewish meditation,
  • To develop a detailed curriculum for Jewish meditation that can be shared with educational institutions in Israel and around the world, and
  • To develop a Beit Midrash for regular study of Kabbalah in connection with regular in-depth practice of meditation and prayer,


On a Personal Note

With many mixed emotions, we decided to move from our beautiful home in Tzfat to Efrat. The main reason was to be closer to our family here. We look forward to opening our home for meditation sessions as well as other classes. Efrat is part of Gush Etzion, south of Jerusalem. We endeavor to fulfill the verse in Isaiah 2:3

“כִּי מִצִּיּוֹן תֵּצֵא תוֹרָה וּדְבַר ה’ מִירוּשָׁלָ͏ִם”

“For Torah shall come forth from Zion,
The word of GOD from Jerusalem.”

And to continue our connection to Tzfat and the North, there is also this beautiful verse from Psalms 133:3:

כְּטַל חֶרְמוֹן שֶׁיֹּרֵד עַל הַרְרֵי צִיּוֹן כִּי שָׁם צִוָּה ה’ אֶת הַבְּרָכָה חַיִּים עַד הָעוֹלָם””

“like the dew of Hermon
that falls upon the mountains of Zion.
There the LORD ordained blessing,
everlasting life.”
