The Attachment Theory in Psychology and Judaism

The Shofar Curved Or Straight? One Breaths or Two Breaths? A Debate on Shofar Captures the Journey Between Our Need for Attachment and for Independence

1 hr 25 min

Class Summary:

This women's class was presented on Tuesday, 21 Elul 5777, September 12, 2017, at Bais Medrash Ohr Chaim in Monsey, NY.

The class explores the debate in the Mishnah about the shape of the shofar and the debate if we take a breath between the Shevarim and the Teruah -- on a deeper emotional, psychological and spiritual level. Delving into the Attachment theory in psychology and in Judaism, the class explains two states of consciousness, Igulim and Yosher, oneness and separation, and how ultimately, it is in the synthesis of both that we can find our wholesomeness and meaning in life.

    lookig for clearity

    Thank you for the class! what is the advantage of not taking a breath between the shvorim truah and if there is an advantage, it would probably be well represented by a shofar poshut -just like the shofar kofuf represents the aknowlagment of the need for both attahcment and connection- so why not use a shofar poshut as well -during the tekiois m'umod

      its also interesting that the shofor poshut represents igulim while the rounded shofer represents yosher
