On 15 June 2018 Winnipeg Free Press (Canada) reported: Inspired by meditation to seek ordination, Rabbi Alan Green plans to use his Jewish perspectives in the meditation capital of North America. After 18 years as the senior rabbi of Congregation Shaarey Zedek in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, Green, 64, and his wife Chaya, a meditation teacher, will move this summer to Fairfield, Iowa, USA, home to thousands of practitioners of Transcendental Meditation. It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring fulfilment to the fields of religion and culture.
''Basically it will be a context where I can fulfil my dream of Jewish observance and study with the practice of Transcendental Meditation,'' says the Los Angeles native, who came to Winnipeg's former Beth Israel Synagogue in 1992. He has served at Shaarey Zedek, a Conservative congregation of about 1,000 families, since 2000.
During his tenure, the clarinet-playing rabbi with a wide smile made a significant mark on the Wellington Crescent synagogue, the oldest Jewish congregation in Western Canada. Green also spent considerable time explaining Judaism to other faith groups, inviting them into the synagogue and generally acting as an ambassador for the tradition in Winnipeg, synagogue president Lorne Weiss says.
