Join us on the first Shabbat of the month for a meditative service that brings you back to the original intent of the Shabbat Liturgy. The Kabbalists saw the Siddur (prayerbook) as a map of the higher universes. Get your spiritual GPS working when you tune in this monthly meditation. Followed by the holiest whitefish and lox Kiddush.

Meditation can serve as a opening to your davening or as a great start to your day.  Breath, visualize, imagine, contemplate and connect using ancient wisdom and modern knowledge.

Our Monthly meditative service meets throughout the year.
