Join Valley Beit Midrash as we welcome Rabbi Mark Hillel Kunis for a thought-provoking discussion on his latest book, Dancing With God: How to Connect With God Every Time You Pray.
About the Author: Rabbi Mark Hillel Kunis was ordained from Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary of Yeshiva University. He has dedicated his life to reaching out and touching Jewish souls. Rabbi Kunis possesses a passion for the mystical and a unique ability to inspire with the depths of Torah. His classes, articles and sermons are renowned in Atlanta where he has been a pulpit rabbi for the past 27 years. Previously, he served pulpits in New Jersey and New York. His essays have appeared in several books, and now, with the publication of Dancing With God: How to Connect With God Every Time You Pray, Rabbi Kunis introduces readers to a prayer experience they may never have imagined they were capable of.
About the Book: How do we really connect with God so that our prayers move from the head to the heart? In its wisdom, Jewish tradition has created what can only be understood as a dance that, if done properly, can lift the participant into an intimate encounter with the Divine. How is Jewish prayer a dance? One sits and stands, moves one’s hands, moves backward and forward, bows and rises up; one chants and sings and embraces God. Each movement is pregnant with meaning. Taken together, Jewish prayer is nothing short of a most intimate dance with the Creator. This book was written to help the reader learn how to ‘dance’ in such a way that he will connect with God every time he prays.
