In the coming weeks, we will be rolling out more opportunities to work together to make our community stronger. In utilizing the findings from the Every Voice Counts Community Study, we will be launching a series of programs with the Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership (CLAL), to help plan for the future of our Jewish community. We have the power and ability to shape and create our Jewish destiny in Rochester. We have never been stronger together than we are right now and I hope many community members will choose to be involved in this process. Stay tuned for information.
We are very grateful for the William & Sheila Konar Foundation, which has funded our work with CLAL and the Max and Marian Farash Charitable Foundation for funding the Every Voice Counts study. Once again, these important partnerships are making all of us stronger.
There is so much more to all of these programs, much more than I can convey in one Shabbat message, and I am happy to speak with anyone further about these initiatives. As we enter Shabbat, at a time when we are all concerned with the state of our world, it brings enormous comfort to know we have caring community members, families engaged in amazing summer programs, and the intense cooperation between our agencies and synagogues to make us all stronger. This is community. This is worth celebrating. Let us take our successes of today and make our tomorrows even brighter.
Shabbat Shalom -
