Please carefully read below the information from IJS' "How We Make for Safety" Policy. We also ask that you read our guidelines for how we make for safety on retreat. 

IJS is committed to making our retreats as safe as possible for all participants. Jewish professionals who are currently going through an adjudication process with their professional organization for ethics violations of a sexual nature or involving physical or emotional abuse may not attend our retreats or retreat-based programs until there has been resolution of the case. Those who are currently suspended or have been expelled from their professional organization for such violations may not attend our retreats.

You may contact Rabbi Sam Feinsmith with any questions or concerns. [email protected]

Application Questions


Tuition includes all program and retreat costs, including room and board. All participants stay in single rooms at retreats.  We offer tuition at three levels. Level 1 covers the full cost of your participation.  

  • Level 1: 4 payments of $3,250
  • Level 2: 4 payments of $2,250
  • Level 3: 4 payments of $1,500

Participants commit to a single tuition level for the full extent of the program. Tuition will be split into four equal payments. The first payment is due upon commitment to the program, and subsequent payments are due at the time of registration for the last three retreats.
