Join Our Community
Joyful celebration, storytelling, song, chant, dance, meditation, and kabbalah study are just some of the practices gleaned from our treasured tradition. Guest Rabbis and musicians frequent Ruach Hamidbar, revitalizing us with their kabbalistic teachings, storytelling, chanting, meditations, and unique musical gifts. We offer many opportunities throughout the year for learning and growth.
Ruach Hamidbar is an egalitarian community that cares deeply about all life and is committed to “Tikkun Olam” the healing of the world. We strive to bring healing to the world through the promotion of Torah, mitzvot, tzedakah, environmental responsibility, and profound caring for all life. All Jews and spiritual seekers are welcome and no Hebrew or background is necessary.
