I strive to cultivate an awareness of God in every moment.
 We seek a spiritual practice that wakes us to God’s reality in all aspects 
of our lives (Melo Kol Ha’aretz Kevodo: The whole is full of God’s glory).

The Divine Image
 We affirm and strive to reflect the divine and infinite potential in each human being.

Holy Community
 Creating and maintaining a safe, intentional community allows for deep listening to ourselves and to others, and opens us for healing, connection and insight. 

Im eyn ani li mi li?
If I am not for myself, who will be for me? (Pirkei Avot)
 Jewish leaders best serve and inspire their communities when they cultivate and refine their own spiritual lives—you can’t give what you don’t have.

    30. 39. <ul><li>The Institute for Jewish Spirituality offers programs that create opportunities for rabbis, cantors, educators, and lay-leaders to immerse themselves in contemplative practices such as torah study, prayer, meditation, yoga, and spiritual retreats in order to reclaim Jewish wisdom. 

These practices deepen Jewish spiritual life for participants, helping them to become more authentic, inspirational leaders. They can then enrich their communities with ideas and practices that help to create, renew, 
and maintain the personal, meaningful connections to Judaism that are 
so important for the overall health and continuity of the Jewish community and its obligation to tikkun olam.
