Biographical / Historical
ALEPH is an alliance of organizations and individuals within Jewish Renewal, which was founded by Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi. Jewish Renewal is a transdenominational approach to Judaism, combining the progressive values of egalitarianism with Hasidism and the spirit of the havurah movement with the wisdom of centuries of tradition. It envisions a contemporary Judaism that is joyous, spiritually rich, social progressive and earth-aware. ALEPH values deep ecumenism (learning from every person and spiritual tradition), and offers contemplative practices to all branches of Judaism.
Kallah is the largest Jewish Renewal gathering in the world that brings together hundreds of individuals from around the globe to engage in learning, singing, dancing and communing with one another. The event is composed of classes and workshops in the mornings and afternoonos, and convening for musical and artistic performances in the evening.
