Dear Friends and Colleagues,
We mourn our beloved Reb Zalman,
R’ Meshullam Zalman Hiyya ben Chaya Gittel ve Shlomo HaCohen z”l
who took a few peaceful last breaths in his sleep
and slipped away from us
on July 3, 2014, at 8:40 am
at his home in Boulder, Colorado.
OHALAH, the Association of Rabbis for Jewish Renewal, includes more than 200 diverse rabbis who participate in the transformation and renewal of Judaism. We provide our rabbis with collegial support and opportunities for sharing in Jewish learning, life and practice. OHALAH also brings together cantors and rabbinic pastors for these same purposes.
OHALAH holds an annual conference each January. The next shabbaton and conference — our 18th annual — will be Friday through Wednesday, January 10-13 (shabbaton 8-10, conference 10-13), 2016 at the OMNI Interlocken Resort in Broomfield, CO. You may see some of the teachings and resources from the 2015 conference as they become available, as well as resources from earlier conferences, here.
We also connect online throughout the year to pray with one another, to share Torah teachings and resources, and to discuss our sacred work and the challenges facing our people, our communities, our world, and our mother earth. We challenge one another’s ideas and push one another to the limits of our minds and hearts, as did our sages of old.
