Institute for Jewish Spirituality, Inc.

Cultivating Mindfulness. Deepening Connection. Enlivening Jewish Life.

aka Institute for Jewish Spirituality   |   New York, NY   |  www.jewishspirituality.org

Mission

The Institute for Jewish Spirituality seeks to revitalize Jewish life by teaching spiritual practices that cultivate mindfulness on the individual and communal level, so that we can act with enriched wisdom, clarity, and compassion. We teach the core practices of Torah study, prayer, mindfulness meditation, tikkun middot (ethical character traits), and yoga and singing 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 utilize traditional and contemporary forms of authentic Jewish practice to enrich everyday life with Jewish wisdom, link the search for inner wholeness with tikkun olam, and create a vibrant, enduring Judaism.
