Workshops, seminars and courses that inspire full-hearted living

At the Shul

Programs of the Lev Shalem Institute are held at the Woodstock Jewish Congregation, located 3 miles east of the town of Woodstock, New York. The congregation was founded in 1986 and has been at its current location since 2006. The handicapped-accessible building is situated on 34 acres boasting a playground, two ponds, and many trails for walking and hiking. In keeping with our reverence for nature, solar panels were added to the building in 2013.

The congregation is pleased to welcome participants in Lev Shalem Institute programs.
