Jewish practice in the 21st century

Ahava Mission:

Connect the Jewish people, heal our inter-generational traumas, and rediscover our ancestral identity through the ancient Jewish path for self and communal growth - the Torah.

Organizational Goals:

Create self improvement classes, foster community, and increase access to public services. We’ll be starting with our most vulnerable populations - the severally traumatized & societally neglected.

Our Narrative:

Our nation began by the recognition of our cosmic oneness and the practical need for one to sacrifice parts of themselves at times to create a better world. Through our people’s suffering, we were taught to value empathy and to focus on love & understanding to move us through life. Eventually, we were given the opportunity to self determine and build a civilization. And so, 3,000 years ago, a thriving Jewish civilization in the Levant celebrated a culture rich in tribal traditions, spiritual wisdom, & progressive humanistic values. Sadly, due to to western imperialism & natural societal degradation, the civilization of Judea was destroyed & its people brutally displaced, oppressed, & colonized. Thus began the Jewish journey towards complete self actualization. For thousands of years, while living under oppressive regimes & foreign empires the many Jewish tribes held onto their dream of returning home to rebuild what was destroyed. The wise amongst the tribes inspired their followers through oral tradition, written word, and ceremonial practices to hold onto hope and faith and that there will come a time when the Jewish people will once again return to their homeland - serving as an inspiration to the those who’ve witnessed our journey, that it is in fact possible to overcome. From Iran, Ethiopia, and Spain, to Europe, Morocco, and the Middle East, Jews maintained their culture, their practice, & their connection to their native land.

As modern Jewish people living in the 21st century, we hope to cut through the noise of organized religion, internalized colonialism, and the inter generational trauma to continue building what our ancestors prayed, hoped, and died for. We’re reuniting with our family from all modern races & backgrounds to reclaim what was destroyed & resolve the injustices currently being done to & in the name of our people so that we can live in true peace as equal neighbors in the land of our ancestors.

Ahava.org hopes to use modern technology, media, & science to reintroduce ancient wisdom, traditions, and spiritual meditative practices to Jewish people of all backgrounds & to share our story of hope & survival to the world at large.
