A consultation process with our membership took place in 2021 on the subject of patrilineal descent. The resulting report details the outcome of our consultations. While no decisions have been made on this issue to date, we will continue to communicate and consult with the membership in this process.

Jewish Renewal in Vancouver, BC

Or Shalom is a holy community that values ancient wisdom through the lens of modern life.

We share socially progressive values of egalitarianism, the joy of Hasidism, the informed do-it-yourself spirit of the Havurah movement, and the accumulated wisdom of centuries of tradition.

Membership Details Here

I love this warm and welcoming, spiritually inspiring, intellectually challenging, and socially conscious community. Hoping that those who are seeking a progressive, egalitarian spiritual community will consider checking us out. As a longtime member, I am constantly in awe of what the newcomers continue to bring to us as this community evolves over time.
