About Romemu Yeshiva

About Romemu Yeshiva:

Launching in summer 2019, the first cohort of the Romemu Yeshiva is a dynamic group of young Jewish adults pursuing an egalitarian course of intensive spiritual study and practice of Jewish pathways for self-transformation. Romemu Yeshiva combines rigorous text study, deep prayer, and Jewish mindfulness-based practices to inspire participants’ profound transformation as individuals and as members of the Jewish and human communities.

Beyond the courses and retreats, the power of the yeshiva experience comes from its integrated nature where the yeshiva community studies, practices, prays, eats, celebrates, shares, laughs, and explores together. The holistic environment enables not just learning particular texts or practices but an opportunity to experience living out a way of being in the world in a supportive and passionate community.  Each yeshiva participant becomes part of a movement to transform the Jewish world and a global community bringing to life Jewish spirituality in our day.

Immerse Yourself In:

  • Text Study as a contemplative, transformative practice
  • Prayer, both experimental and traditional, as a spiritual practice of transformation
  • Jewish mindfulness, meditation, and other forms of Jewish contemplative practice
  • Key Jewish mystical concepts and paradigms
  • Embodied practice to achieve hesed (loving-kindness) and tikkun (repairing the world)
  • Midot-based (character development) and heart-based practices

Emerge With:

  • A transformed heart: presence, wisdom, awe, love, joy & gratitude
  • A transformed mind: awareness, focus, calm, flexibility, and balance
  • Literacy in Jewish texts, mysticism, and spiritual practices
  • Jewish spiritual leadership and engagement

Participants will emerge with a concrete understanding of how Judaism provides a path of transformation, access to the sources of Judaism’s teaching for self-development, Jewish practices to make that transformation reality, and a deep commitment to Judaism as their path to becoming who they are called to be to transform the world.
