Annual Fund 2019-20

This Yom Kippur we heard a rousing call from our teens. Speaking eloquently and passionately from the bima about climate justice, Nadja compelled us to immediate action through her teaching about Pirkei Avot, 1:14:

"If I am not for myself, who will be for me? If I am only for myself, what am I? If not now, when?"

Nadja’s moral clarity, concise read of Jewish ethics, and the immediate relevance to current day issues made me incredibly proud to be a part of the Or Shalom community. Together we are raising generations of Jewish youth that are defiantly able to stand up for what is right. My own children, just a few years behind, have leaders to engage with and look up to. This community strength is an incredible gift to our future, and it is in honor of this gift that I ask you to participate in Or Shalom’s Annual Fund.

Or Shalom provides us with an inspiring incubator for ideas, a safe place to grieve when the larger issues in the world break our hearts, and a system of moral justice that we proudly share with the wider community around us. Yet it is only with your support that Or Shalom is able to provide the overarching structure. 

Please join me in making a meaningful donation to Or Shalom’s Annual Fund and support the sacred container that enables us to answer our teens’ awakening call.

With warmth,
Seraph White
