Open Circle Jewish Learning: Mindfulness and Mysticism

Mindfulness and Mysticism Circles

Discover meditation, mysticism, and mussar, the Jewish spiritual discipline that helps us nurture our soul and spirit and develop a way of living mindfully.

Open Circle Jewish Learning, a Hebrew College program sponsored by Combined Jewish Philanthropies (CJP), also offers classes focused on Politics and History, Art and Culture, Social Action, and Texts and Traditions, or you can create your own Open Circle salon on any Jewish text or theme. All class descriptions are available here.
