Elat Chayyim Center for Jewish Spirituality

The Elat Chayyim Center for Jewish Spirituality (now a program of Hazon at the Isabella Freedman Retreat Center in Falls Village, CT) began as the Elat Chayyim Jewish Retreat Center, a project from the board of ALEPH (Alliance for Jewish Renewal), the central organization in Jewish renewal. Founded in the early 1990s by by Rabbi Jeff Roth and Joanna Katz, Elat Chayyim offered weekly spiritual retreats year round in the Catskill mountains of New York. Retreats included classes with top faculty, vegetarian food, spiritual community, yoga and meditation offerings, and a unique prayer experience. In 2006, Elat Chayyim relocated to the Isabella Freedman Jewish Retreat Center. In 2014, both Isabella Freedman and Elat Chayyim (as well as the Teva Learning Center and the Adamah Farm Fellowship) merged with Hazon.
