Eternal Light Initiative: Our Annual Campaign
“If I am not for me, who will be for me? And if I am for myself alone, what am I? And if not now, when?”―Hillel
 
Now more than ever, we ask for your help. We can do more. We can further feed, visit, seek, discover, advocate, teach, study, pray and grow. We have seen the good we do for so many, and we are excited for the future.
 
Please consider supporting our holy community and our annual fund through a donation to the Eternal Light Initiative. 
Please note, our High Holy Days publications list all donors since last year through August 2020. We will proudly share an updated version listing our generous supporters after the High Holy Days and they will also be displayed outside of our holy Rudin Chapel for the coming year.
’60s Protest Songs: More Relevant Today?
Wednesdays, September 16 | 8 p.m.
Visit our own virtual coffeehouse for the second half our two-session series, as we examine whether those ’60s protest songs are still relevant or if they are just blowin’ in the wind. Join educator David Woolfe to spend some time with the music that informed our worldview—and weigh the message of those songs against the timeless Jewish values of social justice in this two-part Master Class series.
