A Journey Toward Jewish Mindfulness

Think that only the Buddhists have mastered mindfulness? David Gottlieb wants to challenge your thinking on that.

Filmed at the William Breman Jewish Heritage and Holocaust Museum in Atlanta, Georgia in cooperation with the Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta.
