Mindfulness and Meditation

Rabbi Liben is on the board of the Institute for Jewish Spirituality, and is a graduate of both its Clergy Leadership Program, and Jewish Mindfulness Meditation Teacher Training Program. Through the following activities, Temple Israel offers you a variety of ways to explore this important aspect of spiritual life:

Thursday Morning Mindfulness Morning Practice

Thursdays at 8:00am, on Zoom

Start the day with 45-minutes of relaxed mindfulness practice that includes some guided and silent meditation, some simple chanting, and a word or two of Torah.  No prior meditation experience is required, and newcomers are always welcome!


Please contact the office for the zoom link.



Sunday Morning Mindfulness Minyan

Sundays at 9:00am-9:45am

This service includes meditation, song, and traditional prayers.  We meet in the chapel and occasionally in the courtyard (weather permitting).  The service is in person at the temple but includes participants on Zoom.  The service has gone through permutations over the years.  Rabbi Liben’s leadership on this service was the basis for the Federation of Jewish Men’s Clubs’ nation-wide project: Tefilat HaNeshama: Prayer of the Soul mindfulness service.

All are welcome!
