We will rise and shine brightly for our time has come. Isaiah 60:1
We welcome you as you are; In every stage of your life.
We say to you “Hineynu – We are here when you need us.”
We challenge you to grow; to join our search for relevance and renewal in ancient wisdom.
We say to you “Awaken! So much to be discovered!”
We invite you to share our mission:
To be a source of healing in the world
To ask with us: “If not now, when? What is our sacred work?”
Thus we remember that we are a community that engages in Torah (sacred study), Avodah (spiritual exploration),
Tikkun Middot (personal growth) and Tikkun Olam (healing a broken world).
