The Davennen' Leadership Training Institute (DLTI) offers a unique, award-winning learning experience to help those who lead worship and other communal events in a Jewish context to deepen the quality of communal prayer so that it activates the body, touches the heart, engages the mind and nourishes genuine spiritual growth and insight.
Employing the participatory approach of an intensive master class, this program coaches participants in the high art of leadership of public ritual and prayer.
The training is a two-year program consisting of four five-day retreats.
The retreat participants become a living and learning fellowship — deeply engaged in the practice and process of communal prayer and ritual. Throughout each retreat the group joins with core faculty and master-teachers in ongoing davvenen, text study, group discussions and coaching.
DLTI has trained nearly 300 participants from every denomination, professional and lay role and is now open for enrollment for its Eighth Institute which begins in 2014.
