What might it be like to enter into this Passover season with an open heart and a curious mind?
In the Passover story, Moses begs Pharaoh to free the Jewish people from slavery. But Pharaoh’s heart is “hardened”–five times Pharoah refuses, a reaction that warns us of the dangers of turning away from suffering, difference, and change. What might it be like to enter into this Passover season with an open heart and a curious mind? Join Dr. Tova Markenson for a free 75 minute workshop exploring these and other Passover themes through Jewish mindfulness meditation practices. All are welcome regardless of prior experience with mindfulness meditation and/or Judaism.
