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

China reassigns 60,000 soldiers to plant trees in bid to fight pollution | The Independent

China has reportedly reassigned over 60,000 soldiers to plant trees in a bid to combat pollution by increasing the country's forest coverage.  A large regiment from the People's Liberation Army, along with some of the nation's armed police force, have been withdrawn from their posts on the northern border to work on non-military tasks inland. The majority will be dispatched to Hebei province, which encircles Beijing, according to the Asia Times which originally reported the story. The area is known to be a major culprit for producing the notorious smog which blankets the capital city.

Good News: This Year's Monarch Butterfly Migration Is Larger Than We've Seen in Recent Years | Better Homes & Gardens

Every autumn, monarch butterflies migrate across the U.S., heading south (and in some cases, west) for the winter. They are one of the few butterfly species that makes such a long migration—it can be up to 3,000 miles, and they often travel in such large groups that they fill the sky with their orange-and-black wings and blanket vegetation when resting. But over the past two decades, their numbers have been steadily declining, to the point that this insect is being considered for the endangered species list. Since 1997, when an estimated 682 million monarchs swooped through the air, the population has dwindled as low as 25 million monarchs in 2014 before rebounding to 150 million in 2016. So when reports of this year’s migration seem to indicate more of these winged wonders than usual, it could be a sign that their populations are continuing to make a comeback.

Germany to close all 84 of its coal-fired power plants, will rely primarily on renewable energy | Los Angeles Times

New urban algae canopy produces as much oxygen as four hectares of woodland | The Plaid Zebra

An urban canopy created with algae has got people talking about the link between technology and environment. According to Gizmag, the bio-digital structure pumps a fluid with microalgae around a transparent shelter, which in turn produces shade, energy in the form of biomass, and an impressive amount of oxygen amounting to the equivalent of four hectares of woodland. When it comes to photosynthesis, microalgae organisms are ten times more efficient than large trees and grass. Buildings and architectural surfaces are efficient spaces to utilize this technology.
