Mechon Elat Chayyim: Two-Year Training Institutes
Our two-year training institutes provide rewarding opportunities to deepen your studies in a particular area of Jewish learning and spirituality. The rhythm of the retreats - one in winter and one in spring/summer, over the course of two years - allows ample time to hone your skills and develop lasting friendships in a tight-knit community. Two-Year Training Institutes are programs of the Elat Chayyim Center for Jewish Spirituality.
