Can we say anything useful about “spirituality,” a non-Jewish word which has transformed Jewish life and practice?  Is it just a narcissistic feel-good for the privileged and the lonely, or is there more to it than that?  Can the word even be defined?  Today  we’ll look at the purposes, stages, and varieties of spiritual practice; distinguish spirituality from religion, hedonism, and personal growth; and suggest that a spiritual orientation transforms religion and is an essential part of the life well lived.

This workshop is part of Limmud UK, a four-day gathering of Jewish learning and community in England.  For information, visit www.limmud.org.
