Transforming Congregations Through Soulful Education Training of Clergy and Professional Staff

Miami One-Day Onsite Ayeka Soulful Education Training

For Clergy, Professional Staff, and Community Leadership


The one-day onsite Miami Soulful Education Training for clergy, professional staff, and community leadership will be a “stand alone” seminar providing an introduction to the Ayeka methodology in theory and practice. The goal is to help enable congregations in Greater Miami to connect to an intimate, meaningful Judaism through learning.

The day will be divided into two 3-hour sessions (morning & afternoon, with break for lunch).

The morning session will focus on how to frame a soulful teaching moment before the actual teaching begins.

Practical “Takeaways” will include: 

  • How to frame a class for any age group
  • How to frame a Dvar Torah and individual counseling sessions so as to invite the congregants to be open to personalizing the ideas

The afternoon session will focus on how to enable the congregants to personalize the learning and bring the subject into their lives. We will focus on pedagogic tools for continuing the educational process after the “teaching” is over. Ayeka posits that the most important educational moment of occurs after the teaching, Dvar Torah, or counseling is over.

Practical “Takeaways” will include:

  • How to learn a spiritual text spiritually
  • How to personally process the ideas of the texts
  • How to enable the participants to bring the ideas into their lives.

Both the morning and afternoon sessions will include a breakout into small groups for the participants to practice ideas offered during the sessions.
