P'nai Or Jewish Renewal Congregation

6757 Greene St (Community Wing of Summit Church)
in West Mt. Airy
Philadelphia, PA 19118

P'nai Or Philadelphia is a welcoming and diverse Jewish Renewal community. We invite you to learn more about our community and about the Jewish Renewal Movement in general.

We come together for prayer, study, and celebration, building a vibrant spiritual community to effect personal and global transformation . Our synagogue is located in the Community Wing of Summit Presbyterian Church  6757 Greene Street in West Mt. Airy, Philadelphia, PA

We meet every Shabbos (Saturdays 10:30 am-1:00 p.m.). An hour of lively, participatory Torah study precedes Shabbos serices, from 9:15 - 10:15. Services are followed by a potluck vegetarian lunch. All are welcome!
We also meet from time to time on Friday evening for Kabbalat Shabbat, and of course, we have services and celebrations for all holidays.
P'nai Or is a unique congregation which grew in response to our search for innovative approaches to Jewish prayer, learning and celebration.  Our davvenen' (prayer style)  is upbeat, celebrational and participatory, blending Hebrew and English song and chant with opportunities for reflection and sharing. Throughout the year, we sponsor classes, get-togethers, and holiday celebrations. 

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! 

P'nai Or is a member congregation of ALEPH:Alliance for JewishRenewal
