Meditation Retreat: Cultivating Compassion In Our Hearts and In Action

UPDATE:

We are postponing the summer meditation retreat. Please email ilana.lerman@jvp.org if you would like to informed of next steps in the rescheduling. Sorry for any inconveniences this may have had on your summer!

We at Jewish Voice for Peace are proud that we are showing up boldly and powerfully in this moment in the streets, with allies across movements, in congress, for Palestine, for our country, and for each other.

We also know that in order to be in this struggle for justice for the long haul, we need to show up as our most powerful selves. Meditation is one tool for cultivating a contemplative practice that can nourish our souls, keep our hearts open, and ground us as we take bold action.

This is why we are thrilled to invite you to our first ever, Weeklong Silent Jewish Meditation Retreat sponsored with The Awakened Heart Project.
