• Rabbi Ted's Shabbat gatherings welcome all who wish to deepen their spiritual path.

    Join him and musicians Jenny & Jack Heutmaker and Paul Bruno on December 11, 7:30 pm, at Interfaith Community Sanctuary, 1763 NW 62nd Street in Ballard.

    Rabbi Ted pioneered the development of meditative Shabbat worship almost 40 years ago, at Makom Ohr Shalom in Los Angeles. That form deepened over the years he led Shabbat gatherings at Bet Alef Meditative Synagogue in Seattle. After taking a sabbatical from leading Shabbat meditations when he left Bet Alef at the end of 2009, Rabbi Ted is once again stepping into celebrating Shabbat in his distinctive way on the second Friday of each month.

Spiritual guide, author, teacher and therapist

Rabbi Ted Falcon, PhD, chosen as one of the Jewish Daily Forward's Most Inspiring Rabbis of 2014, has been a student and teacher of Jewish meditation and Kabbalah for over forty years. With gentleness and humor, he offers unique insight into spirituality while deeply affirming the integrity of each individual being.
As part of the Interfaith Amigos, Rabbi Ted explores the frontiers of interfaith spirituality. Karen Armstrong calls their "exuberant and courageous" second book, Religion Gone Astray: What We Found at the Heart of Interfaith, "an inspiration and example for all of us in these sadly polarized times."

Perhaps a night that invites us to disguise ourselves offers a brief respite from our usual mask—for isn’t our personality a complex mask we developed to establish and support our separate identity in the world?
