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.

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 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

Spalding: the CCP’s Influence on 2020 | The Epoch Times

Robert Spalding, a retired Air Force brigadier general and senior fellow at the Hudson Institute, said this “entire year has been dominated by actions of the Chinese Communist Party” because “2020 has really been about the coronavirus.” He said that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) enabled the spread of the virus through international air travel while blocking domestic air travel within China. He said the CCP locked down the distribution of PPM masks around the world, put pressure on the World Health Organization to not talk about human to human transmission, encouraged panic on social media, and spread disinformation that the virus originated from the United States and Spain. Hudson Institute Senior Fellow Robert Spalding said: “What does it have to do with the CCP? Why did we have massive mail-in ballots? Because of the Coronavirus. Why do we have the Coronavirus? Because of the Chinese Communist Party.” “So when you add all of these things together, the actions by the Chinese Communist Party deliberately impacted the U.S. election,” he said.

Hopes rise for end of pandemic as Pfizer says vaccine is 90% effective | World news | The Guardian

Hopes are soaring that a Covid vaccine is within reach, following news that an interim analysis has shown Pfizer/BioNTech’s candidate was 90% effective in protecting people from transmission of the virus in global trials. The vaccine performed much better than most experts had hoped for, according to the companies’ analysis, and brings into view a potential end to a pandemic that has killed more than a million people, battered economies and upended daily life worldwide. The data is from an interim analysis and the trial continues into December but the headline results were emphatic. Regulators will be looking to process an emergency licence application at record speed.

Mental Health, Substance Use, and Suicidal Ideation During the COVID-19 Pandemic — United States, June 24–30, 2020 | MMWR

At least one adverse mental or behavioral health symptom was reported by more than one half of respondents who were aged 18–24 years (74.9%) and 25–44 years (51.9%), of Hispanic ethnicity (52.1%), and who held less than a high school diploma (66.2%), as well as those who were essential workers (54.0%), unpaid caregivers for adults (66.6%), and who reported treatment for diagnosed anxiety (72.7%), depression (68.8%), or PTSD (88.0%) at the time of the survey.

Scientists baffled at disappearance of influenza... but is it really gone, or just masked by Covid-19? | RT Op-ed

There has been a 98% plummet in flu infections this year, dispelling fears of a Covid and flu ‘twin-demic’ about which many had warned. Experts say we can thank masks and social distancing. But does this really add up? Although there is no mass testing for flu as there is for Covid, the WHO says that surveillance of data from around the world shows flu rates collapsing everywhere. Australia essentially ‘skipped’ their flu season this year, with not a single case reported since July (their peak). In fact, flu has more or less vanished throughout the Southern Hemisphere, and early indicators suggest it will follow suit north of the equator. What can explain this unprecedented decline?
