King David’s Therapy: Tehilim

Many of us don’t see the benefit of reading Tehilim. We struggle with their poetry, syntax, grammar and meaning. For the last 3000 years, the Tehilim have had a powerful effect on those who recite them. How much more so if we knew what the poetry meant! Avraham’s method is to do less and focus more for amazing results. New insights appear to long standing issues. King David has actually done the work. He is the top spiritual therapist of all time. This workshop will present creative approaches to Tehilim from music to buddy learning, creative writing and more. You can carry these methods with you your whole life to nourish your soul from the ultimate Book of Emotions.

Avraham Moskowitz founded and directed the Seattle Massage School. He has practiced Naturopathic Medicine for over 20 years, and was professor and clinic director at the John Bastyr College of Naturopathic Medicine in Seattle. He is the author of Tehilim Cards, based on King David’s major gift.

Allergy Testing–Tolerance & Sensitivity to Food

Understanding how your body handles food is the path to optimal health. Many conditions are caused by our body’s inability to handle various foods. Discovering what foods are good for you enables both physical and mental health. Dr. Anders Nerman has worked for years in the field of food tolerance testing. He’s found that specific foods can be problematic for an individual, and that once identified, healing is much more accessible. Learn how eating the correct food can have an almost immediate impact for a healthy body. Healthy food does not always mean right for you.

Dr. Anders Nerman, N.D. is a Canadian-trained, licensed (non-practicing) & board-certifiedNaturopathic doctor. Dr. Nerman graduated in 2012 from the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine, one of six accredited naturopathic colleges in North America. He promotes evidence-based natural integrated medicine with a focus on preventative medicine and nutrition. His  focus is in the treatment of digestive disorders such as IBS and SIBO, food and environmental allergies, chronic fatigue, acute and chronic pain, fibromyalgia, traumatic brain injury, weight loss, sports injury and pediatric care. He is the exclusive provider of IgG Food Allergy/Sensitivity Blood Testing in Jerusalem.  www.drnerman.com

Counting the Omer to Health

Naturopathic philosophy speaks of "The Natural Law of Sevens" in the healing processes. The Omer is a prime example of this universal law. 

Sometimes when it seems like things are getting worse, all we need is patience for a new perspective so they can get better–often better than expected. In this workshop we will see examples of how almost any health condition can be naturally cured and/or prevented, including gallstone removal without surgery, helaing childhood diseases, dealing with weight issues, old age difficulties and more. Our discussion will include breathing exercises, links between natural healing and Jewish philosophy, and an opportunity to share healing challenges.

Shanni Reiff-Profesorsky is a practitioner of naturopathy and yoga, and author of 2 books–Holistic and Tasty Nutrition (2006) and Bri'a - a Holistic Journey throughout the Hebrew Year Cycle (2017).

How do we actually see? What and how much? Does each of us see differently? Is there such a thing as clairvoyance? Are there various types? How can we develop our vision?

We will look at these questions together, share experiences and exercise our optical capacities.

Beyond our physical sense of vision, we are gifted with skills that enable us to create a reality that we fore-see. Imagination and envisioning are said to be the paths to reach out for our dreams. Who are those whose dream come true? What is their point of view?

Like many of us I am a multicultural person. I have 55 years on this planet (seemingly not the first time around), and I am a care giver. I love taking care of myself, of others, of animals and plants. In my eyes it is an art–something that time, experience, on-going work, love and modesty improve. My journey as a receiver and as a giver has helped me sharpen my intuition and ability to envision. I shall be delighted to share with you some of my practices and love to see you soon.

Becky Rothstein.jpg


Becky became interested in positive thinking and self-awareness after moving from Chile to Israel at age 16. She suddenly had to transition to life in a new country, a childhood blow to her self-confidence and creativity. As a young mother and wife she found herself unhappy and full of anger. Her body began to express her suffering as her right leg shortened from childhood polio that doctors had declared cured. She endured debilitating back pain coupled with digestive resistance to frequent painkillers. 

Investigating methods for self-healing, Becky quickly understood that personal reality stems from our own thoughts. A workshop based on the positive thinking methods of Louise Hay taught her to stop blaming herself and empower change. Feelings of failure gradually disappeared. She listened to her pain to understand its message, choosing to embrace supportive and positive thoughts. 

Today Becky takes no pain medication and walks without a limp. She provides a true mirror of deep listening and simple guidance that offers solutions. Becky Rothstein is Israel's only authorized teacher trainer in the positive thinking methods of Louise Hay. Over 30 years of experience allow her to precisely identify the issues that plague people and teach them to find their answers inside.

  • Gloomy Wednesday

    Let’s talk about moodiness. When we feel depressed, in the dumps, or sad, we can learn to regulate our emotional barometer. The lungs enable us to breathe in life. Inhale.

    I’m Afraid So

    Fear is a part of us. We’ll look at fear in this class and how to take responsibility even when the fear is still there. Remember that the kidneys, which are responsible for courage and fear, have a kid inside. That kid seeks our attention.

Feng Shui

We live most of our lives indoors. What is the influence of indoor energy on our health, sleep and relationships? Does that energy change with time and can we improve its influence?

Feng Shui expert Shoham Wajsman brings the ancient teachings of antiquity to the Whole Health Forum to explain the forces that effect our lives through the inanimate world of houses and objects, which actually are full of life and mystery.

The knowledge of Feng Shui was developed 4500 years ago during the period of the Yellow Emperor. This Eastern holistic approach that views man as one with his environment brought us the secrets of “Feng Shui,” literally Wind & Water. It remains practical and useful information to this day. This great understanding brings techniques and formulae to communicate with our surroundings in the language of form, color and material.
