100 Days and Counting


This past week, we marked 100 days since October 7th. Our hearts ache with those who were taken captive in Gaza and with their families. Yesterday was the first birthday of Kfir Bibas, the youngest person kidnapped by Hamas. We will keep praying and doing all we can to bring Kfir and all of the hostages home.

In the midst of heartache and grief, we were moved by a new podcast from Hadar that offers a spiritual response to what is happening in Israel, based in conversations with Israelis about how they are addressing the pressing spiritual and moral questions

in Israel today. We hope you will find it meaningful.


Spring into Jewish Learning

This spring, we are launching an introduction to Judaism course, an invitation to learn new things and/or refresh your knowledge about our 4,000 year old Jewish tradition. We’ll ask good questions and delve into the what’s and why’s of Jewish life, practice, and ideas.

The sessions are open to people of all religious and cultural backgrounds!
