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: Have you ever wanted to say a comforting word to friends or family members who were in distress, but were so afraid you’d make things worse that you said nothing?
Kohelet (Ecclesiastes), which is read on Sukkot, was written by Solomon, the wisest of men. And he has wisdom for us about what to say. The book of Job also has wisdom, this time about what not to say. The two principles of communication that we will discuss will guide you next time you wish to respond with skillful compassion.
