Support Or Hamidbar

What sets us apart?


Or Hamidbar is not one-size-fits-all Judaism. We are a new kind of group – creating progressive Jewish spirituality in the desert. Our Rabbi, David Lazar, meets all seekers —Jewish or not, believer or skeptic, student or scholar, just trying it out or tried and true —wherever we are in our spiritual journey. His deep grounding in Jewish scholarship and learning, practice, and social engagement foster the open exploration we need for authentic spiritual growth.
  • Study – Jewish and other faith traditions, ancient texts and folk-art, contemporary Israel and Jewish American society and culture;
  • Spiritual Practice – prayer services and meditation for Shabbat, Holidays and walking in nature;
  • Social Action – a Jewish voice for progressive thought, interfaith collaboration, and repairing the world.
At this time of year when we renew our spiritual commitments, please consider a financial contribution to Or Hamidbar. Become a sponsor! We’ve come a long way in our first few months – and we have an exciting future ahead. Please share as much as you can to support Or Hamidbar, Coachella Valley’s independent Jewish community.
B’vracha – Blessings,
