›› Welcome to P'nai Or!

P'nai Or of Portland welcomes you and invites you to share in the wellspring that is Jewish Renewal!

Our joyous worship is infused with singing, chanting, and dance.  We “pray with our feet” through tikkun olam (social justice) partnerships within and beyond our local community.  We dive deeply into Torah, learning from Chassidic masters as well as other wisdom traditions. And we celebrate the divine image reflected in the rich tapestry of individuals and families – LGBT, Interfaith, Jews by Birth, and Jews by Choice – who journey with us.

P'nai Or means 'Faces of Light' in Hebrew.

Adult Education: Siddur Study with Bob Lowe

Bob's 5775 series on Siddur Study was so well-received that we are continuing it for 5776! Classes will generally meet on the 3rd Sunday of the month (November will be rescheduled), 2:30-4 pm.

No knowledge of the prayer book or of Hebrew is required, and classes are open to new students as well as returning students. The purpose of the class is to gain an understanding of the multiple meanings behind each prayer, enriching our davenen (praying) experience and empowering us to pray more independently.

Next class: Sunday, Oct 18, 2-4:30 pm.

Each Adult Ed session is free for members, $10 for nonmembers.
