Dear ALEPH Supporter,
Thank you for your past generous support of ALEPH and our work. With you, we continue to grow our alliance of Jewish Renewal and broaden our community, our family. As we begin the high holidays, we join together with our family and friends. I hope you will share your generosity with an additional gift to ALEPH.
Throughout the pandemic, our teachers continued leading their online classes, and our offerings have even expanded! Turns out, engaging with our online programming helped so many people around the world endure many long months of physical social isolation.
Your support of ALEPH today will help us each grow individually, as a community of leaders, and as the universal family.
ALEPH helps us discover long-yearned-for connections.
One woman shared her joy after attending a online Sukkot program. “I’ve been searching for my Jewish community,” she wrote. “I can’t say how grateful I am to have true mentors and teachers.” Another described how ALEPH’s programs, teachers, and community “resonated with my soul.” Yet another gushed that Jewish Renewal has “utterly transformed and deepened my relationship to Judaism and spirituality.”
ALEPH develops inspired leaders.
ALEPH can now claim to have the largest online Jewish seminary in North America for several years running. Why? As one rabbinic student commented about the ALEPH community; “brilliant scholars, soulful mystics, and surefooted innovators.” As one recently ordained rabbi put it, “Aleph might be a silent letter, but for so many of us, it has spoken volumes.”
ALEPH brings us home.
Finding our way home, to our community of renewal, marks for some the beginning of a new family. It also opens a whole new world of possibilities.“I can now recognize, at least, when a door is open to me.” remarked an ALEPH student.
Help us keep that door open, for yourself, and for future generations. Jews and fellow travelers are hungry for spiritual connection. They are seeking meaning and profundity and authenticity. ALEPH’s faculty are true souls who can meet that yearning with loving depth. Only with your gift of $18, $36, $360, or whatever you are able, will we continue to renew generations of teachers, and keep the fires of Judaism burning, for years to come.
Thank you for helping keep the hope for Judaism’s renewal alive.
Rabbi Aura Ahuvia, chair, ALEPH Board of Directors
