Or haGan - אוֹר הגן
Light of the Garden Jewish Community
The members of Or haGan are dedicated to joyful, intentional prayer, Torah study, and singing in a havurah of caring individuals and families, led by Rabbi Jonathan Seidel. In the tradition of progressive Judaism, we are supportive of egalitarianism, human rights, communal mitzvot and healing the world by fighting injustice. We are engaged in support of Israel and continuing discussions about civil rights and the development of democracy in HaAretz. Ours is a learning community uncovering the riches of the rabbinic and kabbalistic teachings in everyday life and lifting everyone up in their particular journey in Jewish learning. We come together to support each other in life cycle and our Jewish journey. In addition to leading our services Rabbi Seidel is available for counseling and tutoring, and teachers widely in the community. Or haGan is affliated with the Union of Reform Judaism
Services are held on the second and fourth Shabbat of the month, at 390 Vernal Street (at Rustic) in Eugene
