Our sister Jewish Renewal group in San Diego is SHIR HAYAM, a collaborative lay-led Chavurah, that began as a grass roots gathering.
SHIR HAYAM is a community of people of all ages and all levels of Jewish background and observances. It offers participatory, egalitarian Shabbat services once each month. Holiday celebrations, meditations, workshops and Shabbatons are offered to the public, hosted by this group.
Many SHIR HAYAM members and friends are also active members and participants in The Elijah Minyan. The two complimenting groups announce and support each other’s events, and often join together to host visiting Jewish Renewal teachers and scholars.
