Women have a particular connection to speech—the Talmud tells us that “Ten measures of speech descended to the world, and women took nine of them.” But, aside from a knowing smile, what does this mean to us personally?

Level: Beginner through advanced
Text: Various, optional

Note: This class is for women only. Textual skills are not necessary; Yehudis’ forte her ability to take more complex Chassidic concepts and break them down so that both relative beginners and more advanced students can absorb them. Those who have textual skills will be provided with source material to prepare or use as references for classes.

Women have a particular connection to speech—the Talmud tells us that “Ten measures of speech descended to the world, and women took nine of them.” But, aside from a knowing smile, what does this mean to us personally?

In this exciting course for women only, we’ll explore the spiritual potential hidden in our speech. We’ll gain an understanding of how speech can be an expression of our own Malchus, our “vehicle of influence.” Together, we’ll refine, enrich, and heighten our awareness of this special gift.

Some topics include:

  • Speech as a Bridge Between Mind and Action
  • Discovering the Four Worlds of Meaning Hidden Within Every Word
  • A Time for Speech; A Time for Silence
  • Understanding the Relationship Between Sanctity and Speech
  • The Intimacy of Hitbodedut— Connecting to God in Your Own Words
