At Yom Kippur services, Rabbi Elyssa discussed what change has meant for us as a people. Let's continue the conversation throughout the year as we look at and respond to these questions:

  • What are the seeds you wish to plant for your descendants?
  • How can our faith renew us to embrace change?
  • How is change a holy part of the unfolding story of our people?
  • How might you allow meaningful change to enter your life personally?
