A Jewish Renewal community combining innovative and traditional approaches. Offering zoom-based noon yeshiva classes weekdays, zoom based Shabbat services every Friday night and Saturday morning, celebrations of all Jewish holidays and observances on zoom. Meets for holidays, Shabbats, lifecycle events, guest speakers, and progressive discussion groups —during Covid, only on zoom. Otherwise at homes and sacred spaces throughout Berkeley. Led by Rabbi in Residence Jonathan Seidel, many lay leaders, and ED Lorelai Kude, the Minyan offers opportunities for personal growth and creativity. The gatherings are opportunities for joyful participatory worship, deep learning, and contemplation, with space for music, connection, individual expression, meditation and dance.
