Aylah Hallel

Minister Aylah Hallel


I was born on October 7, 1963 in Sacramento, CA.
In the early 7o’s I moved with my grandmother (who was raising me) and my two sisters to
Brush Creek in the Las Plumas National Forest – 30 miles up the mountain from
Oroville, Ca.


I have one child, David who was born in 1982.
In 1992 I married William MacGregor.


I was a Christian for 20 years and then I practiced Judaism with
The Haverat Shir Hadash Jewish Renewal Community in Ashland.
I came onto a Magical Pagan path in January of 2001.


In 2001 I accepted what my mother had told me when I was eight years old –
I am a hereditary Witch. I came fully onto the Path of Paganism and Magic and never looked back.


In 2005 me and William MacGregor formed Rowan Tree Coven.

In 2006 we went public, rented a space in the Underground Marketplace in Ashland,
formed a board of directors consisting of myself, William MacGregor and Todd Barnett, filed for non-profit status
and changed our name from Rowan Tree Coven to Rowan Tree Pagan Ministries.
