Metivta retreats are offered several times a year in secluded settings throughout Southern California. A small group comes together to meditate, study, pray, and chant. Something truly remarkable takes place: for a few days, we become members of an intense, dedicated community, emerging refreshed, cleansed and ready to reenter our everyday lives more centered and grounded and with a renewed commitment to our spiritual practice.
Experience the majesty and mystery of the High Holy Days in prayer and contemplation. Nowhere is our dedication to the contemplative path more manifest than at Metivta's High Holy Days services. Each year, we strive as a community to create a sacred space in which each participant can find his or her path to God and T'shuvah.
Wednesday Morning Study
Our Wednesday morning study group is an ongoing collection of dedicated students who meet from 7:45 AM to 9:00 AM. We study various texts, usually in Hebrew though not always. Using both Judaic skills and the awareness that meditation fosters in our lives helps us to interpret and understand the texts together. Taught by Rabbi Jonathan Omer-Man by telephone and by Rabbi Ivan Ickovits in person, students enjoy a penetrating and lively discussion.
