Rabbi Geller's Drash
Read Rabbi Laura Geller's Davar Acher on the High Holy Days and this week's parsha, Nitzavim .

"On Yom Kippur, we sing Sh’ma Koleinu , 'Hear Our Voice,' with its poignant plea: Al tashlicheinu l’eit zikna , 'Do not cast us aside when we are old.' On Yom Kippur we notice that we are all, no matter what our age, growing older."

Our Village On the Go
People shared personal stories & pressures of living in LA at Sacred/Difficult Conversations.
The men of the Village met for a Chinese food lunch to get to know each other better.
