What the Holidays Mean to Us … To You?

This year, our planning team of clergy, staff and volunteers convened to explore the meaning of the High Holy Days to them.  Many have a life of experiences and for some, this will we their first. They used terms that included return, renewal, repair, a fresh start, self-compassion, relationships, energy, a time for family, connecting with chosen family, welcoming for all and relaunch. Some viewed it as a blank slate – a new opportunity for a Jewish experience.  They also discuss a goal of radical welcoming.

We strive to provide meaning to members of our diverse community.  Tell us what the holidays mean to you here.
