Retreat Institute

Our vision is to provide vibrant, meaningful, memorable experiences in which participants encounter the relevance and excitement of Jewish values, texts, traditions and community.

The Retreat Institute works in collaboration with Jewish education institutions in the Cleveland community to develop retreats and informal education programs.

Immersive experiences developed in collaboration with the Retreat Institute:

  • Build compelling connections to Jewish life, learning and community
  • Creatively center around Jewish wisdom, values, tradition and practices
  • Customize programs for your organization’s culture and the group’s needs
  • Integrate experiential learning with deep Jewish content
  • Foster a caring community

The Retreat Institute offers eligible organizations programmatic consultation and financial support to develop immersive experiences that includes:

  • Experiential educational design and implementation
  • Staff development and preparation
  • Administrative and logistical guidance
  • Planning and evaluation
