Some history:
P'nai Or is a unique congregation which grew in response to our search for innovative approaches to Jewish prayer, learning and celebration.  

Philadelphia P'nai Or was founded in the early 80's by Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi along with students and colleagues who envisioned a new form of intentional Jewish community.  

Here Jewish teachers and learners would co-create contemporary forms of Jewish statement in a dynamic relationship to Torah, Hasidic prayer and teaching, the Jewish mystical tradition, meditation and current approaches in psychology and personal growth.

 We invie you to visit us. If you are seeking an envoironment in which your own spiritual yearnings are understood and can be expressed in a Jewish context, come to P'nai Or!
