In Person! with Janet Falk and Jeffrey Kessler
Please RSVP (below
) - Attendance is limited


Join us for an in-person Shabbat service.

Janet Falk and Jeffrey Kessler will be conducting Chochmat’s beautiful Contemplative Service, created by founding member Nan Gefen and Rabbi Jonathan Omer-man. The service follows the arc of the traditional morning Shabbat service in distilled form – with alternating periods of chant and silence, time for personal prayer, Torah teaching, and Mourner’s Kaddish.



Janet Falk has been associated with Chochmat HaLev since 2006, when she started participating in Monday Night Meditation. She has been a regular meditator since that time and has co-led the monthly Contemplative Shabbat morning service for several years, along with Jeffrey Kessler. Janet has also served on the board of Chochmat HaLev, was the Board President for 2 years, and continues as chair of the High Holy Days Committee.

Jeffrey Kessler, President of the Chochmat Board of Directors, has been a spiritual seeker all his life. Coming from an interfaith background, his exploration of various spiritual traditions and psycho-physical systems has always been with an eye to ‘what is the common’ to all. As a life-long seeker of truth, he understands that the process of teaching effectively requires intentional exploration of what is still unknown in the landscape of the self. Jeffrey is a longtime practitioner and teacher of meditation, Tai-Chi, Chi Gung, and Mussar. His gentle presence is a foundational bedrock at Chochmat.

This will be an in-person program only. Stay tuned for info on upcoming virtual and hybrid events.
