Ritualwell will connect you with a rabbi. Simply book a meeting below and connect.

Mark significant moments

Ritualize a new beginning, find meaning in a significant end. Judaism reminds us to celebrate life and honor loss; we dance at weddings and gather with mourners after the death of a loved one. We also go through other big changes: we move to new cities, begin or end relationships, change careers, achieve milestones, or shift family structures.

Your rabbi can help you create a customized ritual to honor an important transition.

Develop spiritual practice

  • Engage in text study
  • Deepen your understanding of prayer
  • Learn chanting or meditation practices

Your rabbi can guide you to discover spiritual practices, try out unfamiliar Jewish rituals, and find meaning in traditional ones.

Receive spiritual direction

  • Uncover forgiveness within yourself
  • Explore your relationship with the Divine
  • Find joy and gratitude in the everyday
  • Wrestle with the questions of the Torah
  • Explore your Jewish identity

Your rabbi can provide you with spiritual nurturing and guidance, wherever you are on the journey.

Who is this for?

Whether you were born or raised Jewish, matrilineal or patrilineal, of a mixed Jewish background, of another religion and wanting to learn more, the partner of someone Jewish.... If you want to deepen your Jewish knowledge, our rabbis are here to guide you.
