Be a Jew for the Weekend

Peter Walters offers an experience like no other: the chance to taste what it is like to live as an Orthodox Jew for a weekend. Peter writes: “During this weekend we (Jews and non-Jews alike) will try to get a sense of being traditionally Jewish, learning about how a Jew feels, thinks and acts. Traditional prayers, shabbat experience and study of the word of God from a Jewish perspective will be mixed with meditation, guided reflection, music and chanting… as well as a taste of some Jewish food.

Questions, discussions, arguments and disagreements will be actively encouraged: after all, arguing is the Jewish way of learning!

Peter Walters (Shimon Yaakov ben Avraham) is a counsellor and psychotherapist with a background in occupational health, management and organisational consultancy. He has a lifelong interest in spirituality and mysticism, and speaks across the country on interfaith and traditional Judaism.

Led by: Peter Walters (Shimon Yaakov ben Avraham)

Please arrive 6pm on Friday. The course ends with lunch on Sunday
