Discovering a New Self – Within & Beyond
Hosted By: Applied Jewish Spirituality
Prepare for Rosh Hashanah and the New Year with Yiscah Smith and the profound teachings of the Aish Kodesh (Holy Fire), the sermons from the Warsaw Ghetto of the Piaseczner Rebbe, R’ Kalonymus Kalman Shapira (1889 – 1943).
The Piaseczner was a mystic, pioneering educator and a highly evolved spiritual guide and innovator. He addresses the situation of his fellow Jews with humility, authenticity and faith. His radical teachings hold enduring relevance for us today, especially as a source for cultivating spiritual resilience, renewal and inner redemption.
The Piaseczner views Jewish living and tradition as a spiritual practice. His progressive ideas discuss the spiritual nature of our body, mind and heart, how we awaken to the Divine presence within us, and how we can integrate these components and expressions of the Jewish experience into one whole healthy being. His teachings are devoted to a profoundly holistic approach to the spiritual life and service of the Divine.
It is difficult to comprehend how the Rebbe was able to weave this type of redemptive, radical and renewed consciousness into his teachings during this horrific period. And yet, he did. And in that vein he guides us, walks with us and provides companionship for us as we begin to encounter a deeper dimension of ourselves in the New Year.
