Our Kallah one-day workshop applications are due in just over one week! Are you interested in leading a one-day workshop at Kallah 2023? Check out our full announcement here: kolaleph.org/2022/11/10/announcing-the-open-application-for-one-day-workshops-at-kallah-2023/WHAT HAPPENS AT KALLAH?A lot of things happen at Kallah! Folks gather to sing, dance, pray, learn, and experience moments of deep spiritual connection together. During the daytime, a large focus is on four-day classes and one-day workshops, which meet from Tuesday through Friday of Kallah week as well as Shabbat afternoon. Four-day classes meet for four sessions over the course of the week, and one-day workshops meet for one session on a selected day during the week. Our four-day class applications are now closed, but our one-day workshop applications are now open!MORE ABOUT ONE-DAY WORKSHOPSOne-day workshops are a fantastic opportunity for participants to learn about and participate in a wide variety of topics. Some folks will even take up to nine different one-day workshops over the course of the week! Most one-day workshops are offered at the same time as four-day classes, with the exception being that a handful of one-day workshops will be offered on Shabbat afternoon.Should you choose to apply to lead a one-day workshop, you will have the opportunity to select whether you would like to offer your workshop during the week or on Shabbat afternoon. Please note that if you select that you would like to host your workshop on Shabbat afternoon, that means that you are comfortable leading your program DURING Shabbat. This is not at all a requirement, and is only for those who are comfortable with leading a workshop during Shabbat.We strongly recommend that workshops that are submitted to be offered during Shabbat have a Shabbat/rest/centering focus.APPLICATION REQUIREMENTSDue Date: Thursday, December 1, 2022 at 11:59 pm ETAll applications for one-day workshops must be submitted through the online application here: bit.ly/kallah2023onedayworkshopapplicationApplications submitted through other formats will not be accepted.Applications submitted after the deadline will not be accepted.Check out our full announcement and read all of the details here: kolaleph.org/2022/11/10/announcing-the-open-application-for-one-day-workshops-at-kallah-2023/ ...
