We encourage you to integrate the four worlds–physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual–in how you present your program. We particularly welcome applications that incorporate one or more of the following modalities: music, traditional and contemporary Jewish text, psycho-spiritual process, art, ritual, movement, connection with nature, storytelling, writing, healing, meditation and prayer. We also encourage you to utilize the group process so that participants and the relationships they form also become a teaching tool.
If you would like to review this application in full before submitting, you may download the application here. Please note that this link is NOT the application, and is simply for your convenience to prepare for the application. Applications submitted via email or other forms will not be accepted. You MUST come back here to fill out your application for it to be considered complete.
Please also note that one-day workshop leaders are not provided with any honorarium or stipend for their work. Kallah is designed as a community created by the members of that community, and we are thankful for all who express a desire to step up and assist in leadership.
If you are co-teaching with another presenter, please consult with one another and fill out this form only ONCE.
Whether or not you are selected to present a one-day workshop, we encourage you to register for Kallah at www.aleph.org/kallah. It is truly an experience like no other, and one not to be missed!
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Looking forward to seeing you in West Chester!
