“Against an age of alienation, isolation, and polarization, we are building a community of connection and encounter. Our goal is to fulfill the prophet Isaiah’s dream: Neveh Shalom will be a house for people of all backgrounds, orientations, genders, and viewpoints. We will then share our culture with the larger community and world.”

– RABBI DAVID KOSAK

Why My Cat Loves That I Am Jewish and Other Habits

Growing up, we always had to feed our dog before we could sit down to dinner. I thought it was just our family practice. One day when the family hound had turned five or so, and I was particularly hungry, I tried to eat something first. My mom stopped me and said that in Judaism, we are required to feed our animals before ourselves.

You Are What You Wear – Parshat Tetzaveh 5779

We’ve all had those moments that make you either exceedingly proud or exceedingly sad. As a parent, the proud moments are when my children show compassion to others and use the words and actions we’ve tried to teach them since the day of their birth.
