About ALEPH Kallah 2018!
A Unique Transformative Jewish Experience:
Every two years the Jewish Renewal movement holds this spectacular week long ALEPH Kallah summer event, in a different campus around the country. Now "the Kallah" comes to Amherst! Generous camperships for Western MA households is also available from Harold Grinspoon Foundation (see https://hgf.org/grants-awards/jewish-family-camps).

Immerse yourself in a celebration of vibrant learning, spiritual wisdom, and joyful prayer. Meditate, chant and create. Feed your heart, mind, body and soul with art, dance, music, and social justice. Kallah brings together some of the Jewish world’s most inspiring teachers and leaders. Adults, community members, singles, couples, families, kids and teens all have unique program opportunities and choices. Kids Kallah and the Teen program are top-notch making friendships that last a lifetime, and enhancing families with kids to be part of community in many ways.

Kindred spirits come from far and wide to Kallah, a week-long gathering that is Jewish Renewal. Hundreds of seekers, educators, clergy, students and lay leaders will descend on the beautiful Pioneer Valley of Western Massachusetts, home of UMass Amherst, to soak in this joyous, diverse, and family-friendly experience.

There’s no place like ALEPH Kallah 2018:
Kallah 2018 will combine spirituality, education, and music, in a celebration for all ages, building on the work of Reb Zalman z”l, spiritual founder of ALEPH: Alliance for Jewish Renewal. The UMass Amherst campus is easily accessible by all means of travel and offers modern accommodations and delicious sustainable food.

There will be 40 courses (two each day) to choose from, plus creative workshops, yoga, prayergroups, singing, learning, hiking, meals, celebrations, concerts and events. Early bird registration gets priority for sign-ups for courses.
