Free Online Class:

Preparing for Liberation with the Piaseczner

With Yiscah Smith

Monday February 21

9am Pacific / 12pm Eastern / 5pm UK / 7pm Israel for 75 minutes

In this live, interactive online class, taught by Yiscah Smith, we will explore teachings from the Piaseczner Rebbe, Rabbi Kalonymus Kalmish Shapira, also known as the Aish Kodesh (1889-1943). We will focus on excerpts from his work, Hachsharat HaAvrachim (Training for Students) that empower us to access the deeper meaning of this period leading up to Pesach (Passover), the Holiday of our Liberation – cultivating a sense of inner freedom to live a life of truth, awareness of the Divine within and becoming faithful to our spiritual center, our soul.


Through textual learning and experiential practice, we will explore how to train ourselves to become more sensitive and open to allowing ourselves to explore and inhabit our inner world. Together, we will learn and experience why passion and feelings are so important to this process, what it means to truly be a feeling person. For example, one important theme in the Rebbe's teachings is deepening our relationship with the Divine through employing meditative visualizations.


​All texts are provided with clear translations, and no prior knowledge or experience with the subject matter is necessary.​


This class is welcoming of advanced students and novices alike.
