Review for BET ALEF MEDITATIVE SYNAGOGUE, Seattle, WA, USA
I was born in 1951. I came from a culturally Jewish background; the religious aspects of Judaism to which I had been exposed seemed form-bound, anachronistic, and lacking vitality. Since 1999 I have been oriented to the spiritual worldview of Integral philosophy, which is comprehensive, universal and demands coherence on many levels. I have found in Bet Alef a creative dedication to joyfuly including and expressing Judaism's tribal + scholarly + cultural + activist roots, and pushing into universal and mystical territory. What a find!! Bet Alef is an incredibly attractive and unusual package for Jews, and anyone, who needs a postmodern and mystical spiritual home with lots of rich tradition underneath. The people are great, too.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
learning, Torah study, High Holy Days and Shabbat and Havdalah services, the great music.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
sophisticated in the best sense of the word. Intelligent and funny.
Ways to make it better...
more services and events and activities could be in Seattle instead of the east side.
In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...
