Overview

The cartoon book Yiddische Yoga: OYsanas for Every Generation is a funny, affectionate commentary on the stresses of contemporary Jewish life and its adaptation of Eastern spiritual practices.

Four “Neshama (Spirit) Guides” represent Jews of diverse generations and demographics who, despite their differences, share a loving—if complicated—connection to family, Judaism and Israel.

Some cartoons are sweetly funny while others illustrate awkward realities of living Jewishly today, be a person traditional, liberal, young or old. It includes one Neshama Guide who is a recovering heroin addict, for instance, and another whose business and health are failing.

The book pokes fun at the tentacles of tradition and the tsunami of new truths. It includes Son and Menstrual Moon Salutations, Oysanas, Essenas, Kiddushanas, Bubbesanas, Pranamammalas, Silences, and Jewish Chanting. At the end, readers are guided in finding “Real Resources” regarding Jewish yoga and other spiritual practices. "
