Clergy Leadership Program & Hevraya
Applying Jewish Wisdom
$200,000 over two years
The Institute for Jewish Spirituality’s (IJS) Clergy Leadership Program (CLP) sustains and strengthens “spiritual first responders.” The program helps Jewish clergy cultivate personal spiritual practices grounded in mindfulness that benefit both their personal lives and their work over their careers. CLP includes retreats that combine prayer, meditation, text study, embodied practice, and group discussions; interim study and practice with a partner; and ongoing one-on-one guidance from a highly regarded staff. Hevraya, IJS’s program for CLP alums, provides ongoing support, learning, and practice opportunities, including an annual retreat. This renewal grant supports both programs.
