Intentions for 5780

August 30, 2019


I write this note as we emerge from the sadness of the 9th of Av to the weeks of consolation as we move toward the new year. This year on 9 Av I joined hundreds of other Jews from Philadelphia to stand vigil against the treatment of immigrants and people seeking asylum from violence in their home country.

My hope for the coming year is that we begin the new year with an intention to:

• Stay deeply connected to each other, to establish strong communal roots
• Continue to raise our communal voices to injustices in the world
• Be grounded in spiritual practice so that we are held by Divine hands as we hold others

Shana Tova!
