This Journey Into Jewish Spirituality course from My Jewish Learning will introduce you to a range of Jewish practices aimed at fostering greater awareness and deeper connection to your higher self. Taught by Rabbi Danielle Upbin, this eight-week experiential course will combine text study with spiritual practices to help you elevate your everyday activities into sacred acts of divine connection.
Each week for eight weeks, you'll learn the fundamentals of Jewish spirituality, in a community of others on similar spiritual journey — through inspiring video lessons, weekly exercises to stay on track, guided meditations, group discussion, and more.
The course will start on Monday, April 24, 2023.
All backgrounds are welcome. No prior knowledge of Jewish practice is required.
