Local Jewish congregation plans meditation service Friday By MARLO BARNHART / Staff Writer Meditation and mysticism may not be part of the mainstream in the modern Jewish community, but Rabbi Janice Garfunkel of Congregation B'Nai Abraham would like to change that. A Jewish meditation service has been scheduled for Friday at 8 p.m., taking the place of the traditional Friday Sabbath service. "We've never done it here before," Garfunkel said. "It's still very experimental, but we're going to try it. " She said there is a long history of meditation in Judaism but, in recent years, a more scientific and rational approach has been favored.

MAUGANSVILLE - This is Mary Ann Allan's quiet time. Tucked away in a corner of her Maugansville home, she has removed herself from buzzing cell phones, distracting televisions and cyber civilization. It's a temporary escape. In a few hours, the 78-year-old woman will begin a busy day that includes errands and appointments. But for now, she's alone, reconnecting with her thoughts and gaining an inner calm. And she's doing it with a very old tool - meditation. Stretching back thousands of years to ancient spiritual traditions, meditation has found its place in a tumultuous modern world.

In this day and age, there are no limitations to spiritual quests. It is acknowledged that everyone's metaphysical journey will be individual. For some, meditation is key to spirituality. For Diana Foley, a member of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Hagerstown, walking a labyrinth can be a great canvas for a meditative mindset. A labyrinth is similar to a maze, but different. A maze has many dead ends and alternate courses to challenge a person's intellect. In a labyrinth, there is one path to the center.

HAGERSTOWN -- As Michael Holland walked the outdoor Cretan labyrinth at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Hagerstown Sunday afternoon, he paused to read the plaque affixed to a large flat stone at its center. That plaque expresses in words the impact the late Sharon Rucker made on the growth and health of the church she loved so dearly. She died in May 2008 at the age 58. Even the stone that holds the plaque is a tribute to Rucker and her beloved congregation. It was the bottom step of the church's former location on North Potomac Street, saved 12 years ago during the move to 13245 Cearfoss Pike.
