Map and Directions
Join us for an IJS retreat this summer for all members of the Hevraya (rabbis, cantors and educators, as well as interested spouses or partners) at Trinity Conference Center in West Cornwall, CT, from Sunday - Thursday, July 4-8.
 
This retreat will address a subject of pressing importance to many, if not all of us:  “L’shem Shamayim: Bringing Compassion and Clarity to Conflict and Difficult Conversations.”  In a safe and contemplative context, we will explore how we might respond to conflict in our lives (e.g. difficult situations and people, challenging or divisive topics such as Israel, etc.) with greater awareness, compassion, and clarity.  We’ll explore as well how we might apply this mindfulness practice as leaders in Jewish communities, and help our communities respond to conflict with greater courage and creativity.  
 
Our retreat faculty will include IJS staff Rabbis Sheila Weinberg, Jonathan Slater, Rachel Cowan and Marc Margolius, as well as Rabbi Amy Eilberg, who directs interfaith dialogue programs at the Jay Phillips Center for Interfaith Learning in St. Paul, MN, and through the St. Paul Interfaith Network.  Amy has developed a particular expertise in compassionate listening, and is deeply engaged in peace and reconciliation efforts in connection with the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, as well as with issues of conflict within the Jewish community. She is at work on a book on Judaism and Peace-making. 
 
This will be a wonderful opportunity to renew yourself through our core practices of meditation, yoga, text study, and the companionship of the Hevraya, and to introduce a spouse or partner to the practices as well.  If you are interested in attending, or if you’d like additional details, please let me know at marcm@ijs-online.org.
