JW3 and Limmud partner to bring you unexpected and surprising Jewish wisdom online. In this 30-minute bite-size series, educators from across the Jewish community will share some of their favourite pieces of Jewish wisdom.
This week's guest is Yiscah Smith, a spiritual activist, educator, mentor, and meditation guide, who addresses the spiritual practice of encountering the Divine spark within --- the foundation of authentic living. She relies on Jewish spiritual teachings to inform and uplift her students and audiences, acting as a compass, gently guiding them to their unique inner selves.
As a spiritual trailblazer, Yiscah exemplifies what it means to carve one’s own path, as she has grappled with the entanglements at the intersection of her spirituality, Jewish tradition and passionate desire to live a life of authenticity. Encouraging, ennobling and empowering others to carve their own paths and to cultivate the integrity to remain faithful to their unique paths is indeed her passion and inner calling.
Yiscah teaches Jewish contemplative practice and spiritual texts at the Pardes Institute of Jewish Studies, at Applied Jewish Spirituality and in her home in Jerusalem, as well as having earned a reputation as a sought-after inspiring international public speaker.
