Jewish Clergy and the Challenges of Community Spiritual Service - Level 1

Available on Mondays 12 pm - 1:30 pm

*Level 2 will be offered at a later date

Course Description:

A practical, interactive, and tool-providing course designed for Rabbis and Cantors, and which focuses on personal and professional topics including, stress, boundaries, spirituality and faith, Jewish values and family.

As clergy, we encounter many professional and personal challenges that require our attention. Ours is a stressful profession that demands a great deal from us and requires us to engage personally and genuinely while maintaining boundaries that will provide us with emotional security and maintain our family’s privacy. Spirituality and faith are at times challenged and tested; it is possible that our relationship with God has evolved during our years of service and this impacts our work as well.

This course has been built to assist you in responding to these challenges along your journey in your calling and profession. The course will build on the study of Jewish texts from Talmud, Midrash, and Halakha which relate to the challenges written above, and will then present NLP (see below “What is NLP?”) based tools to deal with these challenges. The use will be made of Guided Imagery as well

The Level 1 course consists of 4 weekly Zoom meetings; the duration of each meeting will be 1.5 hours.

The Course will include:

ü Study of classic texts from the Jewish tradition that relate to these challenges followed by discussion.
ü Insights and concepts and tools from NLP (see below “What Is NLP?”) will be incorporated into the work.
ü Practice using NLP tools for engaging these professional and personal challenges.
ü Guided Imagery.
ü Interactive classes with an opportunity for sharing and discussion.
ü Opportunity to meet clergy with different backgrounds and professional expertise.
ü Sharing with other clergy and learning from them.

What is NLP? Neuro-Linguistic Programing is an extraordinary tool for achieving our personal goals. It focuses on emotions, thoughts, and behavior and provides tools and mechanisms for making changes in a wide variety of human endeavors. NLP has application in areas as diverse as parenting, employment, interpersonal relations, personal satisfaction, phobias, personal habits, and much more. Its impact has been felt in fields from art to science, from sports to business.

* Those enrolled in the course have the possibility of a personal and private meeting with the instructor at a separate and reduced cost.
