Welcome to
Olami Oregon

Our place is your space to connect with other Jewish students, have a good home-cooked Shabbat dinner or simply grab a coffee (and a meaningful conversation).

This is
what drives us.

Hey, thanks for taking the time to find out more about us.

We’ll start by sharing a little about what drives us…

We believe that life is not measured by heart beats or salary scales. It’s measured by the growth that we achieve – within ourselves, and the world. We strive to do good, feel good and be good.

We are a community focused on the simple betterment of ourselves and the world through Jewish connection, conversation, wisdom and adventure.

So we create spaces (like our home here in Oregon), opportunities and experiences that enable us to seek this goodness, together; through conversations with peers and meaningful one on ones with mentors. Through exhilarating trips exploring ourselves and the world around us, or business networks of people who recognize meaningful work starts with meaningful relationships. Or simply taking time out to meditate – to sometimes remain still in order to grow.

Welcome to Olami.

Moshe Drukman
Director / Rabbi

“Eclectic, creative, and entertaining” are the words most often used to describe Rabbi Moshe. He has been hired as a professional magician by Whole Foods, delivered talks at synagogues all over the country, and has artwork that has been displayed at a local art center in Atlanta (where he is originally from). Rabbi Moshe is a certified life coach, has rabbinic ordination from Kollel Zichron Amram of Silver Spring, Maryland, received his bachelor’s degree from Yeshiva College of the Nation’s Capital, and is currently the rabbi at the synagogue Ahavas Torah. He enjoys reading, writing, and yoga in his spare time.

Shaina Drukman
Shaina is known for her warmth, charm, and passion as she divides her time between meeting and hosting students, taking care of her family, and leading engaging personal development workshops. Previously she was a Montessori-trained kindergarten teacher in Baltimore, taught 4th grade in Edmonton, Canada, and has been educated at Charter Oak State College and Me’Ohr Seminary in Jerusalem. Shaina loves being out in nature, playing piano, baking, and painting.
