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.
