WELCOME TO TORAH-VEDA

Torah and Veda are two ancient sources of spirituality still vibrant today. Torah is conveyed through the sacred language of Hebrew and Veda is conveyed through the sacred language of Sanskrit. The focus here is on meditation, mysticism, philosophy, psychology and the underlying spirituality that has been incorporated into religions, and not as much on the religions themselves. Your comments and posts are welcome.

Quote of the Week 378 - Core Teaching of Buddhism


The core teaching of Buddhism is to help people become less self-centered and learn how to give love to others.


--Lama Surya Dass, as quoted in Spirituality and Health magazine, September/October 2017 issue

CURRENT TEACHING SESSIONS

I will be making a presentation at the Atlanta Southeast Limmud this Labor Day weekend, with the following title:

Job’s Second Daughters and the Kabbalah of the Unicorn.

There has been much existential hand-wringing discussion over the centuries about the Book of Job. However, there has been little focus on the significance of the concluding verses and his second set of daughters. Come explore these interesting passages and the mystical significance of how one daughter’s name relates to a single-horned creature, sometimes associated with a unicorn.

Yoga for Alzheimers Seniors - Silver Age Yoga Community Outreach, Inc.

I would like to start by thanking Steven for allowing me to approach you, his readers. My name is Ally Peer Ben-Ezzer and I teach Yoga mostly to children www.HaveFunWithYoga.com. Since January of 2008, I have been teaching Yoga for Seniors at Cantor Center in South Florida. My seniors all have Alzheimer’s. They are all at a stage in which they cannot be left alone, so they come to the day center for the day and then go home to be with their families. Yet, they can still follow directions and understand their situation. I teach a weekly class there and can see the progress my seniors make. The daycare center happens to be a Jewish charity but everyone is welcome if they are in need. My class has grown from an average of 14 to an average of 24 participants a week. I need your support in donations to charity through which I teach. Since these are hard times, we were not able to secure a corporate sponsor, as was the initial plan. We are asking from anyone who can help to donate. Please know that there are no small donations, whatever you can do to help will be greatly appreciated.

Feel free to contact me with any questions: ally@HaveFunWithYoga.com.

Namaste,
Ally
