The Kirva Institute invites you to the 7th annual Teshuva Workshop
Create a Spiritual Action Plan for the New Year!
Whether this is your first time or you return every year this workshop will help you enter the Jewish high holidays spiritually prepared. Through Torah study, structured exercises and meditations based on the teachings of Rebbe Nachman of Breslov and the Mussar movement, this workshop will help you review the past year and build a goal-oriented, personal spiritual action plan. Led by Kirva founder Rabbi David Jaffe, this workshop makes a significant impact on the way people experience the holy days and beyond.
Attending the workshop profoundly changed my experience of the High Holidays this year.
