I have struggled with many things in my life. Judaism being one...addiction being another. When I woke up to the fact that the cure for my addiction was a spiritual life I became a seeker. I had turned my back on my Jewish roots many years before and felt there was nothing for me there. Through a series of events (serendipity) I found my way to Bet Alef. The meditation has been very healing and the Judaism sang to my soul.

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

A deeper understanding of Judaism and my connection to the Torah

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

There is a place of sanctuary, where a community comes together for healing and prayer.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Energetic and committed

Bet Alef has been a spiritual home for me for over 10 years. For me, as much as the perspective and teachings of Rabbi Ted, and now Rabbi Olivier, have resonated, comforted and empowered me over the years, I am also grateful for the community of people that I've come to know and love. My life is richer for being a member of Bet Alef.

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

my life, in all aspects. The awareness and teachings inform me professionally, socially and spiritually.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Move the place where the congregation meets closer to my home, or set up a better system of carpooling.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The teachings and community connections.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

generous kind humorous passionate enlightened loving caring expansive spiritual powerful deep connected down to earth integrity laughter and tears

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Expand its message in the community, support others, properly compensate the Rabbi and office staff.

Ways to make it better...

If the location of where we worship was closer to my home.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Financial

One thing I'd also say is that...

The new Rabbi has big shoes to fill, but I know him, his integrity and know he will grow and fill those shoes nicely, as well as chart his own course.

Bet Alef provides a warm inclusive community with a philosophy of practice that allowed my family to re-engage their jewish heritage with our personal values intact. This is not once a year judaism; it's everyday. About reaching out and including anyone. It's not about what sets us apart or outside.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

education
