their way to a 2-game sweep.
The set-slam combination of
Sarah Patt and Scott Aaron-
son finished the second game
with a note of authority. One
of the squads competed for a
gold medal.
In racquetball, doubles
combo Jason Miller and

with the gold, and in the
spirit of Maccabi competi-
tion, Detroit's Howard Kaye

teamed up with Canton's
Josh Poole to take the
bronze.
The boys soccer team, in a
gold medal match with
Cleveland, lost 3-2.

atheletes won 15 individual
medals and two relay
medals. In the 4x400 relay,
Detroit's Jason Weiner,
David Sheinwald, Andrew

800 and the 1600 for the 13-
14-year-old division.
For the girls, Julie Golding
won a silver in the 100.
Next week, The Jewish
News will publish a com-
plete listing of all the medal
winners.



Rabbi Furthers Mystical
Approach to Judaism

LESLEY PEARL

Jewish News Intern

W

hile many children
of the late 1960s
tuned in, turned on,
dropped out and joined up
with the "mystical" faiths of
the east, Rabbi David Zeller
toured the country,
heightening self-awareness
through the mysticism of
Judaism.
The move by many Jews
away from tradition and
toward esoteric faiths and
practices during the era of
free love and ban the bomb is
not shocking to Rabbi Zeller.
However, he blames the
Holocaust, not the Vietnam
War for this action.
"Those people who con-
verted to Hinduism and
Buddhism were looking for
the experiential and the
psychological. Judaism
didn't offer that. It's been
missing since the Holocaust
where 90 percent of the
mystics, those who em-
phasized experience rather
than faith, were wiped out,"
Rabbi Zeller said.
"When we touch the dead,
we are excused briefly from
daily mitzvot. We had to
deal with the death of six
million — it knocked the
spirit out of us," he added.
Rabbi Zeller spent Aug.
16-18 with a group at Tem-
ple Shir Shalom in West
Bloomfield, sharing these
types of ideas.

Rabbi Zeller has been in-
volved in the study of spirit
and soul most of his life. As a
child, he was influenced
strongly. by the Jung psy-
chology his father practiced
— a thought system
acknowledging the levels of
humans which cannot be
measured clinically by
machines, specifically of
dreams and consciousness.
Several years later, at
Pomona College in southern
California, Rabbi Zeller
followed his father's lead,
enrolling in a pre-med pro-
gram with aspirations
toward psychology.
However, Rabbi Zeller's
plans were altered after
meeting Jewish mystic
Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach
during summer school
classes in Berkeley.
"He (Rabbi Carlebach)
sang and danced but didn't
lecture," Rabbi Zeller said.
"His teachings werrt
straight to my heart — they
didn't have to be processed
in my head. And I became a
student of the heart."
Rabbi Zeller changed his
major, trading medical for
mystical, and thrust himself
into the integration of psy-
chology and religion, with
an emphasis on the concept
of the soul. He later obtained
his smicha, ordination, after
independently studying with
Rabbi Carlebach.
Having exposed himself to
Buddhism, Hinduism and
