Adam Lavitt, BCC

Rabbi & Board Certified Chaplain
Philadelphia PA
Deep within the core of every individual lies a remarkable internal navigation system, finely attuned to connect us with our ultimate Source. Whether you call it God, Spirit, the Universe, the wisdom of our ancestors, or the intricate Web of Life, this innate compass holds the key to unlocking profound clarity, meaning, and wholeness in your life. As a seasoned guide, it is my passion to assist seekers like yourself in harnessing the power of this internal navigation system. Drawing inspiration from my own spiritual growth, I embarked on a transformative journey and obtained certification as a Spiritual Director in 2017 in New York, and under the invaluable mentorship of Dr. Roslyn Weiner. What an honor it is to accompany individuals from all corners of the globe, regardless of their religious or non-religious backgrounds. With five years of experience as a Spiritual Director for students at Hebrew College Rabbinical School in Boston, and Hebrew Union College in Cincinnati, I have gained invaluable insights and wisdom. In my private practice, I have the privilege of guiding and empowering individuals like you to tap into their unique internal navigation system. Together, we will embark on a transformative journey towards rediscovering your authentic self, embracing a sense of purpose, and achieving true wholeness in every aspect of your life. If you are ready to unlock the vast potential within you and embrace a life filled with clarity, meaning, and connection, I invite you to take this courageous step forward. In our time together, we will delve deep into the wellspring of your being, exploring the intricate nuances and the whispers of your internal compass. Through reflection, contemplative practices, and open-hearted dialogue, you will discover the profound wisdom that lies within. No matter where you are on your spiritual journey, I am here to support you. I am committed to creating a sacred and non-judgmental space for you to explore, question, and grow. Together, we will cultivate a deep connection to your ultimate Source, allowing it to guide and illuminate your path.
Imagine a journey where you are empowered to explore the depths of your own soul while finding inspiration from the world around you. Picture a companion who walks beside you, offering guidance and support as you navigate the path towards wisdom. I am that passionate guide, dedicated to helping individuals connect with their inner and outer sources of wisdom. In addition to creating transformative experiences that unlock the true potential within each person as Director of Learning at Jewish Studio Project, I offer spiritual companionship to seekers near and far in my private practice. My work as a spiritual director even caught the attention of the New York Times. Throughout my career, I have served as a spiritual leader in various settings, including congregations, college campuses, and healthcare facilities. After a transformative semester abroad at Oxford University (2003), I graduated cum laude from Kenyon College in 2004. In 2012, I was ordained at and received a Master’s in Jewish Education from Hebrew College Rabbinical School, where I was also the school’s first recipient of a certificate in Pastoral Care. Ever committed to personal and professional growth, in 2017, I completed training as a Spiritual Director through Hebrew Union College’s Bekhol Levavkha training program in 2017, and in 2019 became a Board Certified Chaplain (BCC) through the Association of Professional Chaplains. My teachings, born from a wealth of knowledge and experience, have been widely recognized. My words have found their way into publications such as Evolve, Huffington Post, MyJewishLearning, and The Wisdom Daily.
