Hineni*: Adult Jewish Learning and Contemplative Practices
The Hineni program believes that engaging with Jewish teachings and practices challenges the mind, inspires the imagination, and touches the soul thereby enriching individuals, communities and the world. Wherever you stand in relation to Jewish tradition, you are invited to join Hineni’s instructors as together you explore the richness of Judaism and the sacred within and around us.

Hineni offers an array of adult Jewish learning opportunities and contemplative practice experiences, many in collaboration with Twin Cities area synagogues and agencies.

Hineni* Translation: I am present, I am here, I am ready.
