Aleph and the entire Jewish Renewal world has changed by life in so many ways. Our community, P'nai Or (Faces of Life) of Portland was created around our beloved Reb Aryeh Hirschfield of blessed memory. Since his unexpected and untimely death this past January, the community has come together in unbelievable ways and has shown that it did not exist merely because of the presence of one man. I have also experienced the teachings of many other Renewal leaders at Aleph sponsored events and independently and have always found that the experience deepened my understanding of myself and the Divine.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

how it supports member communities and leaders. It is open to how each individual comes to the Divine and honors their ideas and thoughts.

Aleph is a wonderful organization, that has truly advanced so many important issues in the Jewish world. From eco-kashrut and sacred foods to deep spirituality to interfaith work to ageing and so much more, Aleph has really pushed the boundaries of what it means to be Jewish in today's world. Aleph teachers are phenomenal, classes and workshops are inspiring and transformational - Aleph promotes a living, breathing, evolving Judaism for the heart, mind, body, and soul.
