ALEPH: Alliance for Jewish Renewal is proud to present Tikshoret, a new lower cost, lower commitment online adult education initiative. We aim to offer adults an opportunity to dive deeply into the spiritual and educational gifts of Jewish Renewal, without the cost or time commitments associated with other adult education programs.
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!

Eve and Lilith: Secrets of the Creation of the Divine Feminine
Instructor: Shoshanna R. Schechter-Shaffin
How much do you really know about the Biblical Eve and mythical Lilith? In this participatory 4-part class we will draw on archaeology, ancient ethnographies, actual Biblical text and midrash as we deeply “rediscover” Eve and Lilith and their connections to the ancient Divine Feminine.
Please note: All texts will be taught in translation, no Hebrew background is necessary.
