About Or HaLev

We believe that Judaism is a path of transformation for our lives, relationships, and the world. Our mission is to teach concrete Jewish techniques for deepening our lives and to provide opportunities for intensive contemplative Jewish practice. We see the wisdom and practices we teach as a crucial part of learning to live joyfully, authentically, and responsively, and of learning to respond wholeheartedly to the basic Jewish and human call for compassion and justice. We are guided by a commitment to the three pillars of Torah, Avodah, and Tikkun: Wisdom, Practice, and Transformation.

Torah– There is deep and relevant wisdom in our sacred texts and we are committed to sharing it in a resonant and life transforming way. Our path is grounded in deep and rigorous textual learning. We are also committed to empowering people with the tools to access and appreciate the texts, wisdom, and practices themselves.
