Tikshoret Connections

About This Program

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! 

Questions about Tikshoret or the classes, please email tikshoret@aleph.org or call (215) 247-9700 x30.

ROSH CHODESH CHESHVAN - Cheshvan is the moon in which there are no Jewish holidays (beyond Shabbat), the quiet after the month-long prayer of the High Holidays.

"In the deep quiet of the dark moon we can allow ourselves to rest in the fullness of our recent immersion in the radiance of divinity, community, and celebration. The rain begins soon (traditionally, in the northern hemisphere), and we are like clouds, full and ready to rain down blessings into the ground of our daily life.

We will explore the metaphor of water as blessing through song, meditation and reflection on Torah text."

Have you ever given advice and been greeted with silence, or gotten back, ‘Shut up! Who asked you?’ I’ve asked this question many times, and nobody has ever said, ‘That never happens to me’. We all give advice. 

And good advice is a valuable gift--when it is done skillfully. If not, it could come back to bite. In this class you will receive an overview of the five key principles of giving effective, heart-centered advice. I have been teaching these skills for 15 years, and have seen the difference they made in people's lives. As you apply these principles, you will find that you give less advice--and the advice you do give will be better received. Invest this hour in yourself and in improving your communication skills, your relationships and your quality of life.
