The Marcus Jewish Community Center of Atlanta presents a special new program, Drop-In Jewish Meditation. Beginning Oct. 4, the 12-week series of classes will be offered on Thursdays at 10 a.m., in the MJCCA’s mind/body studio.
“Jewish mediation helps to relieve the stress of daily living,” said Valerie Chambers, MJCCA’s wellness coordinator. “We welcome the community to come meditate at the MJCCA in a relaxed atmosphere, while adding the element of Jewish education.”
This class will be working with Jewish religious leaders and lay leaders. They will present a meditation based on the weekly theme/parsha, which they will discuss afterwards. No experience in meditation is necessary. Both beginners and experienced meditators are welcome.
The MJCCA’s new Drop-In Jewish Meditation series was generously underwritten by a grant that was given on behalf of the Mindful Giving Fund.
“We are hoping that this grant will enable more people in our community to experience and benefit from Jewish meditation,” said Stuart Bern, Executive Director of The Mindful Giving Fund. “We felt this class would be a wonderful addition to the MJCCA’s existing wellness programs.”
The program is free for members and $5 for the community.
