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 of South Orange County.


Temple Beth El 6st Annual Meditation Retreat

Sunday February 6, 2022 
With Rabbi K’vod Wieder

In the Psalms, it says “For You, Silence is Praise.” Some of us are aware that the deepest truths about ourselves and our lives can only be found when our consciousness can expand beyond the distractions and the chatter of the mind. In the silence, we can open to a Loving Presence, simplify complicated situations in our lives, and discover ourselves in new and empowering ways.

On our online meditation retreat, we’ll explore the pathways of silence, contemplative study, and sacred melody. This daylong retreat is geared toward both seekers who are new to meditative practice as well as experienced meditators who are looking for authentic ways to express these pathways through Jewish tradition.
