About Rav Avraham Shira

Thirty years ago I set out on a journey in a blue and white Chevy van with a conviction that God can be found in words. I also felt pain, the pain of life without meaning, purpose or direction. There had to be a purpose to all this suffering. Was there a God we could turn to; the Big Something we all needed but kept at arms length...

I crisscrossed America writing poetry, working odd jobs, bartending and sleeping wherever the van was parked. In the end the wind blew me to Jerusalem. I found myself in the prestigious academy of Kabbalah, Nahar Shalom, the only American with almost no Hebrew, little Bible or Talmud, but endless desire and a willingness to sleep on a bench, eat dry bread and humous,and immerse myself in this transformational wisdom.

I was filled with a vision of a better world through Torah. That vision, like fine wine, took a long time to mature. When a student suggested we create a Patreon page to promote this work, all the decades of writing and teaching crystallized into focus. The Personal Prophecy Manual; An I for an I; Universal Monotheism, At the Hospice, Recovery & Discovery, Jerusalem Nights, all found a place in this exceptional platform.

These past 25 years I have been a student, teacher, therapist, and mentor to hundreds of young and elderly people, converts and new initiates. “Now,” a rabbi hollered recently, ”It’s time to stop hiding behind Facebook!”

As Patrons, you are invited to participate in the Meditation/Writing Workshops, the Master Courses and more. ‘The Ultimate Self’ banner will serve as a touchstone where each patron will be given a chance to partner in this vision of creating an on-line spiritual community, for all people from all cultures and walks of life. Today we must feel the pain, the millions of souls disenfranchised from traditional religions, who understand there has to be a way to find that Big Something within.

These courses and books require professional editing, production and marketing to enable us to bring the highest quality product to a thirsty, hungry generation, and to generations that will follow.

The wisdom of the ancients has always been translated into the language of the day. The overwhelming responses to our work has inspired me to find Patreon. On that Sunday morning in 1988 when I loaded the van and left hometown Orlando, I had no idea I would end up here, with a life work in my hands, from the highways of America, the streets of Jerusalem, and the mountains of Israel. May God bless you with the open heart of youth and the ancient eyes of insight, to join us in the journey.
