  • Description

    Since the founding of the Institute for Jewish Spirituality (IJS) over two decades ago, the Clergy Leadership Program (CLP) has been IJS’s flagship program. Over 18 months, CLP helps rabbis, cantors and other spiritual leaders develop the qualities of heart and mind necessary to sustain compassion, work effectively for justice, and inspire their communities through mix of retreats that combine prayer, meditation, text study, group discussions, and ongoing one-on-one guidance from a highly regarded staff. An essential companion program to CLP, Hevraya is open to IJS’s 530+ CLP alumni and offers opportunities for networking, on-going learning, and an annual retreat that reconnects participants to their IJS experience and each other.
