Review for Aleph-Alliance for Jewish Renewal, Philadelphia, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Raised in a Socialism Atheistic household in Brooklyn, my Jewish connection was cultural. When my marriage was breaking up and I sought help American Indian spiritual advisor friend Grehalva Grey Wolf told me "you're Jewish. You need to talk to a Rabbi". This sent me on a quest for my authentic Jewish roots. When I found Reb Zalman and Jewish Renewal about 27 years ago it was the beginning of the foundation of "home" in Judiasm. I was welcomed where I was and offered a large and varied plate to explore. While I appreciate wisdom in all Spiritual traditions I know where my roots are and delight in the teachings.

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

having a solid homebase in Judiasm

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

the depth and range of the teachings I've experienced in a Jewish context.

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

bright enthusiastic open.

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

make peace in the Middle East, feed the hungry, bring the Messiah. Maybe it would take 20 mil. :)

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every month
