JMCW and Briyut are excited to announce a new set of spiritual resources to help enter and reenter our sacred spaces following the profound shifts of the last two years.  We hope that each person in our community finds something within the following resources that speaks to them. They are being offered freely and a la carte.  (There is no obligation to participate in all of them.)  For more information or to request accommodations to fully participate in any of these programs, please email Yoni Buckman.

Adas Israel received a generous Signature Grant from the Covenant Foundation to help us develop these resources.

Small Listening Circles: Join groups of 8-10 fellow Adas members in four 90-minute facilitated conversations about what we lost and what we may have gained during the pandemic.  These sacred listening circles are for adults (ages 18+) of all backgrounds and will be led by fellow congregants who are trained to hold safe space for these important conversations. Registration required. This free program is sponsored by the Jewish Mindfulness Center of Washington and Briyut: The Wellness Center of Adas Israel.

Listening Groups will have a maximum of 9 participants plus the facilitator and are currently planned to meet on zoom.  Please choose carefully one of the following options that matches your schedule.  Once groups begin meeting, it will not be possible to switch schedules.  You'll receive a zoom link from your facilitator before the first meeting
