Outdoors or Out of Their Minds? Hasidic Teachings on Wilderness/Nature

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Rebbe's Tish (meal/gathering,) the Mitzvah Tantz (wedding dance,) and other Hasidic innovations are primarily (or even by definition) practiced indoors. But in many ways, the early Hasidic masters were equally oriented toward a spirituality of the outdoors. We will learn about meditative, contemplative and other Hasidic practices and views associated with nature and wilderness.
