Adam Lavitt, BCC
Rabbi & Board Certified Chaplain
Inspired by my own growth as a spiritual direction client, I became a Spiritual Director in 2017 through Hebrew Union College's Bekhol Levavkha training program. Since then, I have accompanied individual clients near and far, and of all religious and non-religious orientations. My approach is client-centered, intuitive, culturally sensitive, and compassionate. Clients typically meet with me monthly via Zoom or phone — or, if fully vaccinated, in-person at my Providence office — for one-hour sessions.
I am a spiritual director, transformational educator, and interfaith chaplain based in Providence, RI. Through sacred conversation and spiritual practice, I support people in attending to what matters most, so they can live with a deeper sense of vitality and wholeness. Since 2017, in addition to serving as rabbi and community chaplain, I have worked as spiritual companion and guide to clients near and far, including students at two rabbinical seminaries. I was recently featured in the New York Times. I graduated cum laude from Kenyon College in 2004. In 2012, I received rabbinic ordination and a Master’s in Jewish Education from Hebrew College Rabbinical School, and was the school’s first recipient of a certificate in Pastoral Care. In 2017, I completed training as a Spiritual Director through Hebrew Union College’s Bekhol Levavkha training program, and in 2019 became a Board Certified Chaplain (BCC) through Neshama: Association of Jewish Chaplains.
