"Tous les jours de ma vie j'ai grandi parmi les Sages, et je n'ai rien trouvé d'aussi bon pour le corps
que le silence".
אֵיזוֹהִי דֶרֶךְ יְשָׁרָה שֶׁיָּבֹר לוֹ הָאָדָם, כֹּל שֶׁהִיא תִפְאֶרֶת לְעוֹשֶׂיהָ וְתִפְאֶרֶת לוֹ מִן הָאָדָם

Each dimension of the Traditional Torah Lifestyle is an invitation to walk a true "path of peace", and to contribute to the repair of the World (Tikkun Olam).
What if we looked at it anew?
I work with organisations, groups and individuals, to help people (re)discover and (re)connect to the Jewish tradition in a way that is meaningful and transformative.
I invite you to join me on the journey.

What is Jewish Meditation?
"Jewish meditation" is a generic term pointing to a diverse array of contemplative techniques which Jewish sages have been transmitting for centuries. From Kavannah to 'Histaklut, from Gerushin to Hitobnenut, from Hashkata to Hitbodedut, from Tserufim to 'Haga, the field of Jewish meditation is vast and complex.
It can be roughly divided into three trends: ecstatic Kabbalah, pietistic Chassidut, and ethical Mussar.
