Meditation with Rabbi Baken & Norm Goldstein

Friday, June 7 at 11:00 am (in the CJL Living Room)


Many of us are aware that mindfulness and meditation have become increasingly present in people’s lives as a set of tools to navigate stress, increase calmness and clarity, and to promote joy. We at WRT are excited to be continuing our Meditation Lab, which utilizes Judaism as a context for meditation and explores Jewish meditative techniques. While each of us continues to navigate our emotions and responses to the ongoing crisis in Israel and Gaza, we will also continue to use meditation as a way of creating more space in our hearts and minds.

Looking for WRT Family to Host Israeli Social Worker September 15 to 25, 2024

As a way of thanking Israeli volunteers and social workers as well as building bonds between them and the American Jewish community, Westchester’s “Shalom Yisrael” has for over 20 years been bringing small groups who’ve never been to New York for short visits. This year’s group of 6 women is from Ashkelon not very far from Gaza; they work to help single moms and needy families.

We are looking for one or two WRT families who are willing to host a guest in September (HHDs are late this year!). Hosts bring guests to the WRT parking lot at about 8 AM and pick them up again late in the afternoon or evening.

Interested in hosting? To find out more information, please contact Yoel Magid.
