Philadelphia P'nai Or was founded in the early 80's by Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi along with students and colleagues. We envisioned a new form of intentional Jewish community where Jewish teachers and learners would co-create contemporary forms of Jewish life and prayer in a dynamic relationship to Torah, Hasidic prayer and teaching, the Jewish mystical tradition, meditation and current approaches in psychology and personal growth. It works!
