We are thrilled to gather upstairs on the 2nd floor Saturday at 10:00am to deepen our understanding of Jewish spirituality through the practice of yoga. Please welcome Irrit Dweck and returning instructor, Robin Wald, as they lead us in inspiring infusions of Jewish wisdom, yoga and movement, meditation and relaxation. Our spring schedule is as follows:

April 9 – taught by Irrit Dweck
May 14 – taught by Robin Wald
June 26 – taught by Irrit Dweck

Robin Wald is a Jewish educator who has been teaching Jewish yoga and meditation for adults, teens, and children at synagogues and religious schools in Westchester since 2005. She integrates the wisdom of Torah, Tanach, kabbalah/mysticism, Pirke Avot, and Mussar with the embodied physical and spiritual practices of yoga and meditation.

Irrit Dweck teaches Arabic and Spanish at SAR High School and Yoga to adults and teens. In her classes, she explores a connection to breathe through movement and a philosophical theme.

Whether you are a beginner or an experienced yogi, please join us. Social distancing rules will be followed. Irrit and Robin are vaccinated, and anyone who is unvaccinated will be required to wear a mask. Please bring your own mat and water bottle. Blocks are optional. We greatly look forward to practicing yoga together again!


Mask Policy

Indoors: Consistent with current CDC guidance, all persons age two and above must wear masks at all times while inside the building, regardless of vaccination status. Exceptions include presenters from the Bimah during religious services (including prayer leaders, speakers, and Torah readers) and while seated and eating.

In Outdoor Tent Spaces and on Synagogue Grounds: Masks may be required for large gatherings in outdoor tents as determined by synagogue leadership. At other times, fully vaccinated persons need not wear masks outdoors, although we ask that everyone be mindful of the sensitivities of those around them. All unvaccinated persons age two and above must wear masks outdoors when they are within six feet of others, except when seated and eating Kiddush with their families or pods.

Vaccination Policy

Individuals ages 12 and above: For the safety and comfort of the congregation, all eligible persons ages 12 and above must be fully vaccinated to attend religious services, programs, or other WJC activities in the building. We reserve the right to request proof of vaccination at our discretion.

Those who are not fully vaccinated may attend outdoor programming in accordance with the masking policy set forth above. We will continue to provide access to our services and many of our programs virtually through Zoom and/or live stream.
