Welcome to Bet Alef Meditative Synagogue
Bet Alef Meditative Synagogue is an inclusive spiritual community practicing an evolving Judaism as a path to awakening. We foster a Jewish spirituality for all ages that support each individual, is realized in community, and manifests itself in our world as peaceful acts of greater compassion and love.
Our Shabbat services are offered online (see it on our App, Download here!) and in-person on the first and third Fridays of every month at 7pm PST. The services will be livestreamed here and in-person at Center for Spiritual Living at 6318 Linden Ave N, Seattle.
Shabbat services are the perfect entry point not only to explore Jewish tradition and spirituality through ancient and modern prayers and practices, but to take a break from the hectic pace of our busy lives and gather together to remember that we are human *beings* and not just human *doings.*
Bet Alef member Alan Ness will be taking over the mid-day meditations during Rabbi Olivier’s sabbatical.

1st and 3rd Shabbat Mornings, 10:30 AM
Join us on the 1st and 3rd Shabbat mornings for our study of Maimonides’ The Guide of The Perplexed. This controversial text has been a point of contention for centuries in Jewish communities.
This philosophical masterpiece is, indeed, credited for ushering in a new era in Jewish thought and, as such, for being a transformative influence on our people.
