Experience the proFUNdity of Judaism
Jews today deserve to understand the quantum difference that Jewish wisdom can make in their lives. At Isralight, we empower Jews to experience this wisdom by sharing a Judaism that is relevant, profound, spiritual and joyful.
Isralight participants experience how Judaism enriches every aspect of their daily lives — intellectually, emotionally, spiritually and even physically. They discover that Judaism is compelling, uplifting and invigorating, while giving them a vital sense of purpose, and the tools to succeed and achieve greater heights in their lives.
Our inclusive, multi-dimensional approach offers a warm, welcoming atmosphere where participants from all backgrounds feel comfortable and spiritually nourished. The Isralight curricula and method address the needs of all Jews – from those with little or no formal Jewish education, to affiliated and observant Jews – who yearn for the spiritual spark that can ignite their souls.
The Inner Views program is designed to give the participant a sophisticated and holistic understanding of the major concepts, principles, and practices of Judaism. By examining these concepts principles and practices from a foundational level, the participant will gain an understanding of how all of the various aspects fit together in an integrated spiritual whole.
Because these foundational aspects of Judaism are so often overlooked in all branches of Judaism, we tend to get people on the Inner Views program from every background across the spectrum. Our students range from the young person with no Jewish background fresh off of a Taglit/Birthright trip to people who have advanced Jewish day school experience.
Tour and Explore
At Isralight we believe that in the Land of Israel, Torah is not just learned in the Beit Midrash with the mind, but also learned with the feet, walking the land. Come and explore Judaism and the Land of Israel with our “Birthright” style trip. See the magnificent sites of Israel come alive through the Biblical narrative in way you have never experienced. Walk in the footsteps of King David, feel the fire of the great kabbalists of Sfat, dance in a two thousand year old synagogue, visit the tomb of our patriarchs in Hebron, rest your head on the Holy Western Wall, and meet the most important person in your life. You.
Sometimes you just need to get away from it all. Isralight spiritual retreats provide a holistic experience for the mind, body and soul, specifically designed to “reJEWvenate”. The Isralight Spiritual retreat is a unique combination of beautiful and exotic locations, deep spiritual wisdom, healthy spa cuisine, music and relaxation. Whether it is the Berkshire Mountains, or the rain forest of Costa Rica, the Isralight Spiritual retreat delivers an unforgettable experience.
