ALEPH Ordination Program Ordains Twelve: Nine Rabbis, One Rabbinic Pastor and Two Hazzanim

Aleph, the largest progressive ordination program in North America, welcomed nine new rabbis, one rabbinic pastor and two cantors into the lineage of ordained Jewish Renewal leaders.

This photograph of Reb Zalman Schachter Shalomi was taken by Alan Briskin in August, 2004. Reb Zalman was convening an initiative called Rishi involving a small group of individuals exploring subtle realms for the purpose of global healing.

Alan is donating this print of Reb Zalman to bless his memory and further the great work of ALEPH. Please visit his website at www.alanbriskin.com to see his books on the stirring of soul and collective wisdom. You can also link to his full gallery of photographs.
