After dinner program - Meditation Teachings in the Qu'ran and in the Torah.  Speaker: Igal Harmelin-Moria.  In this talk, Igal will examine the reasons why meditation has been such a fundamental practice for the teaching of all major religions for thousands of years.  He will reference quotes from Jewish and Muslim sacred texts, and if time allows, from other traditions as well.  The talk will include a short guided meditation.  The speaker is an avid student of the teachings of world religions and has been practicing/teaching meditation around the world for the past 40 years.
