First Saturdays of each month (Beginning November 6), 9:30 am-Noon
חֲסִידִים הָרִאשׁוֹנִים הָיוּ שׁוֹהִין שָׁעָה אַחַת וּמִתְפַּלְּלִין כְּדֵי שֶׁיְּכַוְּונוּ לִבָּם
-Talmud, Brachot 30b
The earliest practitioners of kindness would meditate for an hour and then pray, so that they could direct their hearts and minds to heaven.
The first Saturday of each month at Congregation Neveh Shalom is our Meditation Shabbat. An evolving—and revolving—series of practices will be incorporated into our regular sanctuary service, with the sermon slot dedicated to a focused meditation. The heart of Shabbat, including the Shema, Amidah, and the Torah service will be included. Members of the Portland community-at-large are invited to participate
