Nefesh community of LA is releasing our first album!

Founded by Rabbi Susan Goldberg, Nefesh is an open-hearted spiritual community welcoming all of the identities that make up who we are and who we love.

Based in northeast Los Angeles, we are a newer Jewish community known for our special, soulful blend of community, music, and social justice work.

Part of the support of our newly independent beloved community is the creation of a Nefesh Board. Our generous board members have collectively come forward to offer a challenge to the community.  They will match funds donated up to $25K. That means that if the community can raise $25K, then we will meet our goal of raising $50K in this fundraiser! We can do this with your support!


Nefesh: An Ancient New Direction. See for much more.

All donations are tax-deductible.


You’ve asked, and we’ve answered!

Over the years that Nefesh has been a community, we have had so many requests for a recording of our beloved Nefesh musicians’ songs. At long last, we are thrilled to announce that our spring fundraiser this year will in part be raising funds for a long-awaited NEFESH ALBUM!

We are grateful to our production partners who are greatly discounting the costs involved to ensure that the majority of funds will go towards supporting the Nefesh community.

Music director and associate music director Duvid Swirsky and Sally Dworsky with the incredible Ari Herstand, Leah Zeger, Dan Potruch and Philip Krohnengold bring their beautiful souls and their incredible artistry to our community and now to this album.

You are invited to donate in the spirit of one or more of these songs. Has courage - ometz lev - been your anchor and aspiration? Donate on behalf of “Courage”. Are you inspired by the need for healing of yourself, your community, the world? Offer your support in the spirit of “El Na”.

A portion of donations will be directed towards the recording fund and the majority of funds donated will support this beautiful Nefesh community and help to joyfully fill a $50,000 gap in our budget.

As we continue to grow, so does the needed infrastructure to support all that we do. We are committed to our equitable Kin model and to keep that available for all we need fundraisers like SUPERBLOOM!

This is a great time to ask family and friends to donate who have attended Nefesh services and events or who have heard from you about how much you are getting from this community. It is also a meaningful way to put the stimulus check to good use!

Join us in helping Nefesh continue to thrive and help to bring this recording into the world!
