Open. Listen. Act.
Your [COVID] Story Matters

Rabbi Keilah Lebell

It is true: we may all be in the same storm, but we are not all in the same boat. Each of us is experiencing the pandemic differently, with greater and lesser severity. But no matter what your COVID story is, whether it’s been a time of suffering or a time of flourishing — or both, it matters, and we want to hear it.

We Need Your Voice

Rosh Hashanah and Yizkor Submissions

Every year we share a prompt question to help you begin to prepare, spiritually, for the high holy days—which we compile into a beautiful booklet for Rosh Hashanah. We also put together a Yizkor book holding photos and memories of our loved ones who have died, who we hold in our hearts all the time, and especially during this season of remembering.

Right now we’re experiencing a radical disruption in our way of living because of COVID-19 and a mass  uprising for racial justice. The Earth Challenge was designed to respond to a different but intertwined crisis, one that is unfolding more slowly but will be no less deadly than this disease and the systemic racism that has shaped our society and economy. We’re learning through this time of upheaval that what seemed unimaginable societal change is possible when we choose to act–even in our fear and vulnerability–for the collective good.
