MEDITATION

Meditation Wednesdays at 4 pm:  Psalm 65:2:  "to You silence is praise" is among many texts on silence and in the Talmud we learn the sages would "be still one hour prior to each of the three prayer services, then pray for one hour and afterwards be still again for one hour more." BT Berachot 32b. This was interpreted by the Rambam as silent motionlessness in order "to settle their minds and quiet their thoughts." [Maimonides' Commentary on Mishnah Berachot 5:1] All are welcome.
