The Bet Alef Learning Institute (BALI) was created to expand our community’s commitment to education, spirituality and tikkun olam (healing the world).
BALI welcomes Bet Alef members and those in the greater community to participate together by presenting guest teachers who speak on meaningful and wide-ranging topics and by offering events that encourage a more inclusive understanding of our world.
2016 BALI event:
Sacred Sources to Heal the Earth
May 20 – 22: A Weekend with Rabbi Arthur Waskow and Phyllis Berman. Rabbi Waskow, author of many books, founded the Shalom Center in 1983. The Shalom Center equips activists and spiritual leaders with awareness and skills needed to lead in shaping a transformed and transformative Judaism that can help create a world of peace, justice, healing for the earth, and respect for the interconnectedness of all life. Learn more about the Shalom Center here.
The Shalom Center’s current focus is working to combat, and educate about, climate change: “Addressing the climate crisis of ‘global scorching’ and working to end American addiction to over-use of oil and coal that poses extreme danger to the web of life, including human civilization, on Planet Earth.”
