Yoga for Jews: Is it kosher? Is it holy? Is it confusing?
What are some of the thoughts and challenges with adopting yoga as part of a Jewish spiritual path? Do we chant in Hindu? Use the Sankrit language? Practice with idols in the room? Let’s make some peace with the ways these ancient paths enhance and deepen each other, while keeping it kosher.
Optional Dinner at 6pm – Order your dinner in advance from Got Kosher and it will be waiting for you at Temple Emanuel. E-mail DeliaDuPlessis@sbcglobal.net for more information.
