Mission & Vision


ALEPH: Alliance for Jewish Renewal envisions a spiritual renewal of Judaism that is joyous, love- and justice-centered, earth-aware, and rooted in the legacy of our tradition. We serve as a leading edge of consciousness, culture, spiritual innovation, and social action to heal ourselves and our world.


ALEPH: Alliance for Jewish Renewal’s mission is to educate, train and ordain leaders, build communities of spiritual practice, and co-create transformational experiences that build a global movement to reveal God’s presence in the daily lives of all humanity.
