Our 30th Year/Our “Lamed” Year

Still Learning, Striving, Caring

This year we celebrate our 30th Yamim Noraim together as a sacred community. From generation to generation, we ReGenerate our commitment to our vision and ideals. Using the mystical tool of Gematria, where numbers are transformed into letters, the number 30 is the Hebrew letter "Lamed" and is our guidepost for the year.

Lamed means to learn and serves as the root for lilmod, to embody and li’lamed, to teach. Lamed is also used as a direction toward action – to move toward or to become. As we look beyond our 30th/Lamed year we turn to our Statement of Principles and re-embrace these foundational tenets to keep us moving toward the actions required in these times.  We will learn, embody, teach and walk toward them with renewed communal dedication. We will explore how we take care of ourselves as we heal a broken world.

We join together for these High Holy Days and Fall Festivals to discover what lies ahead for us as we ReGenerate and celebrate our sacred connections to community and the world.
