Havurah Shir Hadash - A Jewish Renewal Community

Who Are We?

Havurah Shir Hadash is a Jewish Renewal community located in Ashland, Oregon. We share the desire to fill our lives with a sense of holiness and G-d. We are an extended family of Jews by birth and by choice, non-Jewish spouses and partners, and friends from many different spiritual paths who have come to be with us. We are proud to be a GLBT Safe Zone. We are dedicated to creating a real sense of community by celebrating life cycle events and Jewish holidays together. Visit the Havurah's website to see more about who we are. http://havurahshirhadash.org

What Do We Offer?

In addition to spiritually based services for Shabbat and Jewish Holidays which are infused with music, the Havurah brings many opportunities for education. Our spritual leader, Rabbi David Zaslow, is a phenominal teacher who offers many classes ranging from Spritual Poetry workshops to The Torah of Leonard Cohen to Kabbalistic Meditation. Classes are affordable for everyone. We also support a spiritually based school for ages 3-6, The Peace Garden Preschool & Kindergarten (you can visit their page on ACR) as well as a Sunday Hebrew school for ages 5 - 15.)
The Havurah brings many wonderful, cultural events to our valley as well. Check out our events listing to see all the many wonderful concerts we produce, as well as weekends such as the Joan Borysenko Weekend Retreat that was held in early December.

The New Anti-Semitism by Rabbi David Zaslow

The New Anti-Semitism

by Rabbi David Zaslow



The other day Linda Cotrufello posted an article on this site. The article has been going around the internet and was also posted on another community bulletin board here in Ashland. My response here is strictly to the author of the article and not to Linda. I assume her motives are good and based on her care for our society. But the actual article is by a controversial conspiracy theorist named Victor Thorn. He describes himself in… Continue

Earth & Eco News

Anthropocene

The Anthropocene defines Earth's most recent geologic time period as being human-influenced, or anthropogenic, based on overwhelming global evidence that atmospheric, geologic, hydrologic, biospheric and other earth system processes are now altered by humans. The word combines the root "anthropo", meaning "human" with the root "-cene", the standard suffix for "epoch" in geologic time. The Anthropocene is distinguished as a new period either after or within the Holocene, the current epoch, which began approximately 10,000 years ago (about 8000 BC) with the end of the last glacial period.

Solar Power To Become 4th Largest Electric Power Capacity In The World (Passing Up Wind) | CleanTechnica

Frost & Sullivan’s recent analysis Global Power Industry Outlook, 2018, which posits that solar will surpass wind in global energy capacity starting in 2020, making it the fourth largest source of energy generation behind coal, gas and hydro. Less than a year ago, solar surpassed nuclear energy to reach 5th place.

California is throttling back record levels of solar—and that’s bad news for climate goals | MIT Technology Review

Californians are enjoying a sunny spring, which means the state’s solar farms and rooftop panels are flooding the grid with electricity. The problem is, they’re producing so much that plummeting prices and mandates by the state’s grid operator are forcing renewable power plants to throttle back production. In April, California solar and wind farms shut down or dialed back nearly 95,000 megawatt-hours of electricity, a new record, according to the California Independent System Operator, which manages the vast majority of the state’s electricity. That’s enough to power more than 30 million homes for an hour.
