Pre-registration required for all services

Returning to the Home of Our Soul:

The Long Path: Hindsight - Insight - Foresight 


As we gather in person and on-line 

We will enter the New Jewish Year of 5783 together. 

Who will we become during these times, individually and communally? 

Each of us have had discoveries and losses, breakthroughs and disappointments, moments of isolation and meaningful connections.


The Yamim Noraim - The Days of Awe, ask us to face the truth of our circumstance, strengthen communal bonds to live in solidarity with all beings, and explore for the long haul, the connections and tools for resiliency.
