Jews in Iran – Australian TV – 1/2

12.12.2007

Follow http://twitter.com/SamSedaei to get notice when new videos bare posted.

There are 25,000 Jews living in Iran. When Israel backed a plan to pay Iranian Jewish families $60,000 to settle in Israel, Society of Iranian Jews met the announcement with scorn, issuing this statement: “The identity of Iranian Jews is not tradable for any amount of money. Iranian Jews are among the most ancient Iranians. Iran’s Jews love their Iranian identity and their culture, so threats and this immature political enticement will not achieve their aim of wiping out the identity of Iranian Jews.”

Jews in Iran – Australian TV – 2/2

Overall, Iran Treats Its Jewish Population Pretty Well

21.09.2007

Iran’s Jews (2007): The fiercely Islamic Republic of Iran, is perhaps the last place you would expect to find a large Jewish community. But despite political use of anti-semitic, anti-Israeli slogans, Iran’s Jews appear remarkably free.

For downloads and more information visithttp://journeyman.tv/57268/short-film…

“Anti-semitism has never been the general policy of the Iranian government” explains Maurice Mottamed, the country’s sole Jewish MP. There are of course “glaring differences” in treatment between the majority Muslim population and religious minorities. But remarkably most of the time Iranian Jews are “comfortably doing everything they want to do here. We can perform all our religious celebrations.” This is an image very much at odds with fashionable Western opinion.

The Jews of Afghanistan have a history of 2500 year in this country. They arrived in the area after the Babylonian exile and the Persian conquest. Seventy years ago, there were still about 5,000 Jews in Afghanistan. In 1951, when they were allowed to emigrate, most of them moved to Israel and the United States. TV Ashna’s Breshan Omarkhel visited the only Afghan Synagogue in US, New York and has this report.

Right here, right now


Right here, right now

Posted: 28 Feb 2014 06:09 AM PST

Quote+--+Today+I+Will+Live+in+the+Moment“Take a moment to settle in to being here,” I say aloud. My eyes are closed but I know there are three other people in the room this morning; I heard them walk in, each to their own place in the sanctuary, and I waited until the sounds of their arrival had ceased.

“Notice how you’re sitting in your chair. In your own time, draw your attention from your toes up to the top of your head, and if you find places of tension, breathe into them and let the tension go.”

“Now we’ll move into a practice of following our breath as it comes and goes. When thoughts arise, as they inevitably do — memories of the past, anticipations of the future — just notice them, gently, and then let them go.”

Like goldfish swimming away, I think.

“If you need something to focus on beyond your breathing, try this mantra. On the inhale: right here. On the exhale: right now. Right here, right now.”

Hey, I can write about this, I think. I yank my mind back to right here, right now. Right here, right now.

At the midway point of our meditation, I’m planning to offer a teaching about the practice of teshuvah before new moon— looking back over the last month and letting go of the places where we missed the mark, at moon-dark, before the new month begins.

Since it’s almost new moon. Adar 2 starts right after Shabbat. Adar 2 means Purim. Hey, do all of the Purim spiel actors have their scripts? Okay, that was another stray thought. Letting it go. Right here, right now.

There was a sticker on the door from UPS. I wonder what’s in the package? Right here, right now. Inhale, exhale.Maybe it was something for the family trip that’s coming up. Right here, right now. The trip isn’t happening yet. Stay in the moment.

My ear itches. Right here, right now. The arm where I’m wearing tefillin is getting cold. Right here, right now. Is it time to offer that teaching yet?

The purpose of meditation, it comes to me, is not to still the mind. As though that were possible! I can’t quiet my mind. It leaps and races and chatters and changes the subject constantly. The purpose of meditation, at least as I experience it, is to notice the chatter of the mind. To notice all of the thoughts and desires and smokescreens it places in front of me. Not so that I can make them go away, but so that I can be aware of them. That way, when they arise during the day, maybe I’ll notice them then, too, and act out of a place of awareness instead of a place of blind reactivity.

Sometimes it feels almost unbearable to sit still and listen to the chatter of my mind. I want to distract myself, to think about happy occasions past or future, to get up and do something: check email, roll the Torah scroll for tomorrow morning’s service, tidy my office, anything to give me a break from my own head. But I sit still, and let my thoughts race around me like puppies chasing each other. I cultivate compassion for the antics of my own mind, the lengths to which it will go to avoid just being in the present. Being in the Presence.

Meditation is like Shabbat, I think to myself. Sit still. Stop doing, and just be. This moment is all there is. Right here, right now.
