“U’maase yadeynu conenehu” - Taking ourselves towards the meaningful action

The world as we know it is a mesmerizing bland of actions, events and meanings. Let’s together take a journey into the very midst of this magic, and explore what makes the connection between Actions and Words into the scene for all our life happenings.

Particularly, we’ll delve into the splendid world of “The Jewish Talking Hands' '. We’ll unfold together the hidden gems of meaning in Hamsa, cohens’ blessing, “big finger”, and other “mudras” (finger gestures) in Jewish thought, practice and ritual.

Interactive presentation, followed by the meditation session.
