Cohort Learning Communities

At Orot, we believe that transformation can be found through committed and ongoing practice and shared exploration in sacred community with one another. To this end, we have designed several cohort-specific programs to support individuals and offer them opportunities for growth, nourishment, and the discovery of life-changing wisdom.


Compassion Project

The Orot Compassion Project is an immersive yearlong course of study and practice for those working in and serving the Jewish community. The program is designed to introduce mindfulness-based skills in a Jewish framework. In this program, participants will acquire a concrete toolkit for self-care at home and at work, confidence at administering mindfulness-based clinical interventions in a Jewish framework, a supportive and safe community of compassionate colleague-practitioners, and a deeper connection to Judaism as a source of wisdom and support during difficult times

Peaceful Parent Project

The Peaceful Parent Project is a cohort-based program for Jewish parents integrating Jewish text study with mindfulness practices to support parents’ individual spiritual lives and their desire to rear their children in compassionate, spiritually-connected, and inspired Jewish families.
