Jewish Robotics

at the Western Wall with Reb Gutman Locks @ Mystical Paths


     I have been keeping my eyes open for some way to get yoga out of the Jewish community, and then I met this nice guy from Maryland. He and his son sang the Shema together very sweetly. It turned out that I knew his rabbi’s father very well. I told him that I wanted to give his rabbi a message about his father. He made a small recording, picturing me saying the message. Amazing world of technical gadgets we live in!

     I asked him what he did. He told me that he works in robotics. I asked if he could make a living doing such a thing. He said that he did.

     I said “Great. Give me your card. I want to contact you and learn how to get something to replace yoga. I think this could be wonderful.” And I “danced” a few steps of what I imagined a robotic exercise might be. You know, flowing movements with your arms, and legs, and body kind of dancing to imagined music.

     He looked at me strangely. Up until then I made perfect sense to him. He kind of twisted his face in wonder, and then said, “I think maybe you might be referring to aerobics. I work in robotics. You know? Like robots…machines…”

     “Oh, then I guess that won’t work…” I said, with a little weak smile.
