Losing and Regaining Spiritual Focus: The Wandering Mind and Meditation

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Hasidic masters deemed all passages in the Torah to have eternal spiritual significance, even seemingly outdated ones like the "cities of refuge." A teaching of the Apter Rav on parashat (weekly Torah portion) Masei’ will illuminate how a re-consideration of this topic in the Talmud can be transformed into a meditation technique for restoring one’s spiritual consciousness.
