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: So many people think of Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish New Year) as a day on which we stand before God in judgement. Many attend services on these days with a sense of fear or with a conflicted heart. Is there another way? In the Talmud, the 'day of judgement' approach was only one point of view. Other rabbis had very different ideas about Rosh Hashanah: one in which Rosh Hashanah can be a day of celebration and joy. Come and let your heart be lifted and your soul inspired!
