About Prof. Rivlin:

Born and raised in Israel, Rivlin began teaching as an instructor in the Israeli army in 1993 moving on to direct the instructors unit. He graduated Summa Cum Laude from Tel Aviv University majoring in Psychology and East Asian Studies. Pursuing the union of these two fields, Rivlin moved to Boulder and obtained a masters degree in Transpersonal Psychology. Also a professional touring and recording musician, he has released and played on numerous Hebrew and Jewish CDs including Coming Home a ground breaking collection of original Hebrew chants released by Sounds True. From 2004-2007 he worked closely with Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi and co-authored Into My Garden and At the Rebbe’s Table, two musical anthologies including recordings and transcriptions detailing the musical legacy of Reb Zalman. In 2009 he released Body as Temple, an instructional DVD set on the practice of embodied Jewish prayer. While teaching Hebrew extensively for over a decade, Eyal’s students have described his teaching style as “inspiring, refreshing, accessible, creative and engaging.”
