The Jewish Spirit Quest Program:
The Path of the Baal Shem Tov
Learning by conference call with Reb Yitzhak Buxbaum
If you are a Seeker, it's time to become a Finder.
You are excited about Judaism. You go to services and take courses. But you want something more! You yearn for a caring community and for a spiritual path that leads somewhere, that answers your burning questions and lifts you to a higher awareness. Reb Yitzhak Buxbaum, a Jewish spiritual master in the lineages of Rabbis Shlomo Carlebach and Zalman Schachter-Shalomi created the Quest program to provide a framework that encourages your religious exploration, supports your search for fulfillment, and helps you find your own unique spiritual path.
In a circle of your peers, with Reb Yitzhak’s guidance, you will study the Baal Shem Tov’s Torah of the heart, which puts love at the center of Judaism. And you will learn how to do all religious and life-activities — such as studying, praying, eating, working, and conversing — with d’vekut (devotional God-consciousness), the source of supreme joy.
The Quest program is for men and women of all denominations and backgrounds who have an open mind and a warm heart, who want to love God and all people, who want to live a life full of passion and joy; a life of meaning and community, of holiness and soulfulness.
It’s time to take care of your soul and return the laughter to your life!
