Aquarian Minyan Yeshivah – Virtual Class
August 27 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm PDT
An event every week that begins at 12:00 pm on Thursday, repeating until August 27, 2020
Kabbalah and Davvenology – Theory
The siddur is Judaism’s primary book. Most every Jew owns a siddur (prayerbook). It is a guide into Judaism’s potent and time tested rituals, practices, and meditation.
We will consider mythic metaphors, the evolution of ritual from Temple sacrifice to prayer, etymology, Tree of Life, Yisrael Baal Shem Tov and his epic epistle, Introduction to Yichudim; Unifications, rest into the Four Worlds of prayer, and light visualizations from Kabbalah to enhance your personal prayer.
The Holistic Jew Shahareet for Week Days siddur is recommended, not required, for this course. Images from it will be shared online.
Think of it as Davvenology 2.0, it includes a complete (“yotzei”) prayer practice, juicy Jewish Renewal translations and songs, as well as Kavanot (meditative practices) from some of Kabbalah’s finest sources deciphered and translated into English – many for the first time.

Rabbi T’mimah Audrey Ickovits, BSE, is a visionary, scholar, and teacher. She is the spiritual leader of Holistic Jew cultivating siddurim (prayer books)and leading ritual to provide meaningful mystical prayer weaving juicy English vernacular in with classical Hebrew. Wisdom from Torah and Kabbalah inform Liquid Kabbalah sacred movement. Rabbi T’mimah is in awe of the intricacies of the human body-not only as the vehicle(Merkavah) for the soul in this incarnation, but as a nuanced model of Divine structure. The more one looks inside, the more one learns about The Creator.
Passionate about the environment and committed to equality in death, Rabbi T’mimah supports green, cost-effective, traditional end-of-life options. An avid gardener, Rabbi T’mimah loves the partnership with nature it offers. She looks forward to elevating communal mitzvah meals again soon with food grown in the Holistic Jew garden.
Rabbi T’mimah books–Holistic Jew Shahareet Weekday Siddur and Seven Sacred Circles–are available on Lulu Press. Rabbi T’mimah teaches online regularly. For more information see www.HolisticJew.org
