In the Psalms it says “For You, silence is Praise.” Many of us find that some of our deepest connections with God or a Presence larger than ourselves can happen in silence. Our Jewish tradition is rich with meditative and contemplative practices and teachings. This webpage is an opportunity to access resources to make meditation a part of your life here at Temple Beth El.
