The summer is winding down and the very late High Holidays are coming soon. We may start to assess ourselves on how we lived this past year.
This is the end of a year of challenges beyond our expectations. We have to continue to adjust to these changes.
I get many internet offerings concerning the many responses that come from the various segment of the Jewish world. Many of them have parts that are bolstering our view of our Jewish lives. Some are “right on the mark” and totally amplify the value of our humanistic Jewish point of view.
I will bring examples of these (printed) to our High Holiday services. You will be able to see the variety of possibilities open to us because parts of the Jewish world have been making more investments in actively making our world better. A example is the “Never Again Action” movement, even a “Never Again Rochester” group on Facebook. (This will also be discussed at our first study group on Oct. 13th.) Please feel free to bring your own unique links for the group, to either the study group or services.
Rosh Hashanah will be celebrated on Sunday, September 29th at 5 pm. We will have our service and then have our usual vegan put luck. Please contact me so I can direct you to the location and discuss what to bring for the vegan pot luck.
Looking forward to seeing you all at Rosh Hashanah. Please contact me if you have any concerns or questions.
Shalom, Barry Swan, Madrikh
