This High Holiday season, Valley Beth Shalom invites you to discover...
MAKOR: God's Blueprint
Why do we spend all of our time working so hard? What is it all for? Underneath all of life there is a source, or MAKOR that forms a blueprint of eternal values that make our lives worth living. Watch as Rabbi Noah Farkas teaches us about God's blueprint and how we can use wonder to craft a life of joy and meaning for the coming year.  We invite you to participate in our Makor Ribbon Project, a community activity weaving a tapestry of blessings at VBS. We've also included a haunting poem by Israeli Poet Yehudah Amichai about his father's commanding voice. Lastly, listen to Cantor Phil Baron sing a wordless melody, or a niggun, called "The Ladder" whose music mimics ascending a ladder to find holiness. We hope you can find your MAKOR and have a sweet New Year.
