Jennifer Goldstein

Jennifer Goldstein grew up with no Judaism at all, spent years at an ashram, and was then led to Jewish renewal. She had a Bat Mitzvah ceremony at age 35 at B'nai Jeshurun and helped start Romemu (both in NYC), and practically lived at Elat Chayyum from 2006 to 2008. She is a graduate of Rabbi Shefa Gold’s Kol Zimra Chant Leadership training, and remains her ongoing student. She is a professor of education policy and leadership.

Tikkun Ha-Nefesh Chant Circle

Do you long to stay with a line of prayer, exploring its contours? Do you long to sit in the silence that is your personal date with God? If so (and even if not!), join me for an hour of chanting and meditation. Chanting is the melodic and rhythmic repetition of a sacred phrase. In a Jewish context, it is a Hebrew phrase drawn from our sacred texts. Chanting is a way to open the heart, quiet the mind, embody the words of our tradition, and listen for the voice of the divine within us.
