Welcome to the Jewish New Year season!

From Elul through Simchat Torah, we’ll have abundant opportunities to turn inward and also toward one another, as we once again turn to the renewal of our souls with these ancient words resonating across the generations. Isaiah’s message of "rejoicing in My house,"  which "shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples," rings true today - and we are the ones to make it real.

We reach our highest potential for spiritual, social, communal, and even political action when we each bring our offerings forth, to create a powerful collective expression. We look forward to gathering our individual gifts, questions, and offerings into a communal mosaic of prayer and participation throughout this sacred season. We are honored to share this journey with each of you.

Blessings,

RFred                                                HRRachel
