 Scholarship STILL available for Pardes Spirtuality Retreat!


New scholarship for Pardes Spirituality Retreat! Payment plans also available for Hillel professionals and students.

Mornings of the retreat will be spent in silence and meditation, including meditation instruction and questions and answers, with a transition in the afternoon and evening into mindful speaking, group activities and text study before returning to silence before bed. Evenings will include opportunities for teachings, sharing, art and activities.
