Clergy Leadership Program/Hevraya
Applying Jewish Wisdom
The Institute for Jewish Spirituality’s Clergy Leadership Program (CLP), which works to strengthen moral leaders, was established nearly two decades ago and remains needed today. The 18-month program—which was developed by a small group of rabbis led by the late Rabbi Rachel Cowan—is designed to help Jewish clergy cultivate spiritual practices that benefit and sustain both them and the Jewish community that turns to them for teaching, leadership, and solace. It includes contemplative retreats that combine prayer, meditation, text study, group discussions, and ongoing one-on-one guidance from a highly regarded staff. This renewal grant from RPF supports the next cohort of 42 Jewish leaders entering the program and Hevraya, the Institute’s annual retreat for CLP alums.
