Elena Rosenbaum and Penina Adelman have taught the Aleph- Bet meditation class before. We are both Jewish Meditation teachers trained at the Institute for Jewish Spirituality and long-time meditators. Elana teaches meditation all over the world based on Jon Cabot-Zinn’s stress reduction method. My passion ever since I began learning Hebrew as an adult has been to use the letters as focus for a greater connection to what is beyond and within oneself. The plan is to focus on the first 4 letters, Aleph, Bet, Gimel, Daled. Knowledge of Hebrew is not necessary but will be helpful. Focusing on the inner and outer meanings of the letters, according to Jewish sources and our intuitive sense, we will spend time in silence going more deeply into these meanings. The object of this course is to enable each student to cultivate their own relationship to each letter. In doing so, the letters become tools for meditation, prayer and growth.
