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.

Rabbi Art Green, keynote speaker at the 2016 OHALAH conference


OHALAH holds an annual conference each January. The 19th annual Shabbaton and conference will be held Friday through Wednesday, January 13-18 (shabbaton 13-14, conference 15-18), 2017 at the OMNI Interlocken Resort in Broomfield, CO. You may see some of the teachings and resources from the 2016 conference here, as well as resources from earlier conferences, here. Read Eve Ilsen’s comments on the 2016 OHALAH conference.


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.
