Welcome to Philadelphia’s Jewish Renewal Community!

This past year has brought many challenging issues to the forefront of national awareness and our own. There is much to think about as we do our communal work of teshuvah in preparation for the High Holydays.

At P’nai Or, the High Holydays offer us a time to come together as a community to reaffirm our commitment to kindness, justice, compassion, democracy, equality and fairness. May we each do our personal inner work well, and may we collectively re-energize our commitment to build the kind of world we want to live in.
