Our students make offerings to our community in all kinds of ways. If you share your love of Jewish mindfulness practice by encouraging folks to gather in community, we want to support you! Tell us about your group, and we'll let you know how to subscribe to our weekly podcast and resources for Jewish meditation group leaders as our gift to you.

In Judaism, sacred community is built, stone by stone, through open-hearted offerings. We at Or HaLev are committed to supporting your growth, healing and flourishing. In joining us as a monthly donor, you commit to supporting ours. 

In making this commitment, you count yourself as a member of the Or HaLev community, whose mission is to inspire students to integrate Jewish mindfulness practice into their lives.
