ALEPH: Alliance for Jewish Renewal is proud to present Tikshoret, a new online adult education initiative. We aim to offer adults an opportunity to dive deeply into the spiritual and educational gifts of Jewish Renewal. Tikshoret tuition is intentionally low to welcome a diverse group of learners.
The Hebrew word Tikshoret comes from the root for “deep connection,” and that’s what these classes are designed to be: an opportunity to connect with the riches of our tradition. These exciting classes will be taught by teachers and rabbis from across the Jewish Renewal world. Through this highly accessible online platform, we seek to inspire, engage, challenge, and explore the mysteries of the past with an eye towards contemporary spiritual practice and creating personally meaningful Jewish experiences.
We hope that you will join us on this sacred journey!

Description: Does fasting accomplish anything? Does God even care if we fast?
This is the question that people asked the prophet. His response was: it depends what kind of fast. And he followed with an eloquent restatement of the three core Jewish values. This section, Isaiah 58, is read as part of the Yom Kippur liturgy. Whether or not you fast (or are Jewish), the prophet’s message is a powerful and uplifting one.
If you’re hungry for something different for Yom Kippur, this class is for you.
