Our partners aren’t just names on paper- they’re people we know and love. Some are congregation members who have gone out in the world, such as Eric Friend who left us and made his way to Mexico to found an organization that helps provide rehab equipment for physically challenged people. Some are newer friends in other countries like Nurit Gery and the many students we have met with Givat Haviva in Israel. All are part of our family too.
Serving our community doesn’t stop at the water’s edge. The whole world is our community, and the whole world is our home. We take time regularly to travel together to places with religious meaning to our congregation. In recent years we have taken groups to Iona and Israel. We also work with groups like Bread for the World to tackle hunger.
Working with other faith communities is central to our mission. We maintain close ties with our Jewish and Muslim brothers and sisters, as well as those from other faiths. Our interfaith events are open to all.
