This year, Reform congregations in North America have a unique opportunity to deepen their connection to Israel and to rethink how Israel is expressed within our communities. In the year of 2008/5768, we will mark 60 years of renewed Jewish sovereignty in Israel and celebrate our Movement’s Zionist activity after 50 years of NFTY in Israel and the 30th anniversary of ARZA.
An Urgent Appeal on Behalf of our sister Congregation in Israel
Congregation Tzur Hadassah, Congregation Shaare Emeth’s sister Reform Congregation in Israel, while are making great strides in the effort to spread Reform Judaism in Israel, faces unprecedented financial challenges. We have the opportunity to continue building our partnership with them at this time by becoming “Overseas Members" of their congregation.
Please read Rabbi Ofer's letter below, and consider joining Congregation Tzur Hadassah as an "Overseas Member".
