“Sh’ma Yisrael…” is the best-known verse in Torah and Siddur.  It is often the first verse taught to children or adults learning the basics of prayer. Torah tells us to declare Sh’ma twice daily – when you lay down and when you rise up.  In the Siddur, Sh’ma is couched between two verses proclaiming love, creating a “love sandwich.” Tradition holds that we say Sh’ma before death as a final affirmation of faith. Classical Kabbalah teaches Sh’ma is the single verse that serves to pierce the veil separating Heaven and Earth. Venture into the deep wisdom of Sh’ma Yisrael through a multi-lensed perspective; tradition, language, and sacred play. After completing this workshop your relationship with Sh’ma will be renewed.  You will have new sensations, emotions, and insights to deepen future encounters with Judaism’s quintessential sacred verse, the Sh’ma Yisrael.
