Chabad Offers New Look at Spirituality

Posted Thursday, Oct 18th, 2012

The Rohr Jewish Learning Institute (JLI) will present "The Kabbalah of You: A Guide to Unlocking Your Hidden Potential," the institute’s new six-session Fall 2012 course that will begin on Oct. 29, 2012.

Rabbi Mendel Silberstein of Chabad of Larchmont and Mamaroneck will conduct the six course sessions at Chabad on Mondays beginning Oct. 29 from 7:30-9:00 p.m. at 921 W. Boston Post Rd. in Mamaroneck.

“As diverse as our talents and interests may be, there is an underlying core that is common to all,” said Rabbi Naftali Silberberg of JLI’s headquarters in Brooklyn. “We all share that humanity, that dignity that makes our lives immeasurably valuable. 'The Kabbalah of You' addresses that core.”

Through the examination of the entire spectrum of what it means to be human,"The Kabbalah of You" offers recipes, tips, and techniques for not only discovering where your true meaning lies, but in actually making it a part of your daily existence. These sessions will help you see life as the mysterious, challenging, and satisfying wonder that it really is.

“Bringing light to what it is that makes you YOU will enable you to discover new depths of meaning that will have an impact on every aspect of your existence,” said Silberberg. “Joy, contentment, courage, self-control, a meaningful relationship with G-d, beautiful relationships with others—these are some of the benefits of being in sync with your deepest self.”

Like all previous JLI programs, "The Kabbalah of You" is designed to appeal to people at all levels of Jewish knowledge, including those without any prior experience or background in Jewish learning. All JLI courses are open to the public, and attendees need not be affiliated with a particular synagogue, temple, or other house of worship.

Interested students may call 914-834-8000 or visit for registration and other course-related information. JLI courses are presented in Mamaroneck in conjunction with Chabad of Larchmont and Mamaroneck.

JLI, the adult education branch of Chabad Lubavitch, offers programs in more than 350 U.S. cities and in numerous foreign locations, including Australia, Argentina, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Israel, the Netherlands, Russia, South Africa, Sweden, the United Kingdom, and Venezuela. More than 250,000 students have attended JLI classes since the organization was founded in 1998.
