Sleepwalking through Life? Wake up! (Part 1)
Rabbi Dr. Yitzchak Greenblatt
What is the Jewish approach to cultivating awareness?
Too many people are sleeping through life. Technically awake, but not mindful. When asked why he slept so little, Napoleon is quoted as having said, “Every moment I’m awake I can bask in the glory of being the king. But when I’m asleep, I’m just another peasant.”
As Yom Kippur approaches, learn how to be truly awake.
