Bringing Jewish Meditation to the Forefront

Printer-Ready Page Layout


Yishai broadcasts from Aroma Café in Jerusalem and is joined by Shalom Tzvi Shore. Together, they discuss the concept of Jewish meditation and how the thought is not a new one in the Jewish world. Listen in to find how meditation, an idea that is normally reserved for those that practice other traditions, has been present in the Jewish world for years.

  1. David Newton says:

    Rabbi Kaplan OBM also wrote a book about Biblical Meditation where he links Meditation, as we know it today, to its roots as the foundation for the practices of the Tanach's prophets. Even the Rambam, the great rationalist, meditated and his son Avraham wrote extensively about the subject.

  2. Yoga may have roots in avodah zarah. I cant speak to that. I practice it purely as a physical exercise and its fantastic. Aryeh Kaplans book is called "Jewish Meditation" and is a great read. Puts a little perspective into a litvaks life.

  3. Why have a woman sitting in a foreign posture to represent Jewish meditation? Jews should not sit in this posture because this is a posture of idol worshipers – with the middle finger and thumb touching creating a circuit to return the life force back into the body.This is not our concern as Jews and if it was Rabbi Aryeh Kaplan would have mentioned it in his many books on Jewish meditation – which he did'nt.
