The Institute for Jewish Spirituality (IJS) revitalizes Jewish life by teaching spiritual practices that cultivate mindfulness on the individual and communal levels, so that each of us can act with enriched wisdom, clarity, and compassion. We teach the core practices of Jewish mindfulness meditation, tikkun middot (the cultivation of ethical character traits), Torah study, prayer, and singing and yoga as embodied practices. These practices provide participants with valuable skills for effective leadership while creating opportunities to deepen their inner lives and connect meaningfully with the Divine. We use traditional and contemporary forms of authentic Jewish practice to enrich everyday life with Jewish wisdom, link the search for inner wholeness with tikkun olam (repair of the world), and create a vibrant, enduring Judaism now and for generations to come.
