Join us on this enlightening episode as we delve into the unique journey of Rabbi and Meditator James Jacobsen Maisels. Rabbi James is the founder of Or Halev, an organization launched with the goal of giving people access to a deep meditation practice through a cross-denominational approach to Judaism.

We will talk about why James sends his children to a joint Arabic-Hebrew school; why, as an Orthodox Jew, he sought refuge in meditation to heal his anxiety and depression; how the same tools have helped him and his community since October 7th; and we’ll discuss tools to approach our inner battles with more wisdom and compassion.

Originally from Pennsylvania with a Doctorate in Jewish studies, James lives in a consciously diverse Jewish community in Moshav Hannaton with his wife and three children.
