Emunat HaLev - The Meditation Institute of Temple Emunah

 
We are thrilled to announce the second year of Emunat HaLev: The Meditation Institute of Temple Emunah. Literally translated, Emunat HaLev means the "Faith of the Heart," and we hope this new institute will touch everyone deeply in their hearts and souls, as in the words of the Sh'ma prayer.

There is a rabbinic teaching - rahmana liba ba'ei - the Compassionate One desires our hearts - God hopes we will feel God's presence and God wants our lev - our heart. Emunat HaLev, another component in our incredibly rich offerings, will maintain our existing programs, including a weekly Morning Meditation Group on Tuesdays for us to develop our practice, while continuing to offer new ones.

Our offerings will be primarily for our membership, but we will reach out to others beyond our community as well. Last year we sent some of our Religious School and Preschool teachers to mindfulness teacher training, so they could learn how to bring these practices to our students, help them focus calmly on their learning and, perhaps, share the techniques with their families as well!
