Hi. I'm a historian in Burlington, MA, where we have a church designed by the same architect who designed your building. I'm writing an article about him. Do you have a picture of the Star of David design on the ceiling?
With the schools closed, does anyone here have any iseas how to help the LoCo students who rely on school breakfast and lunch as their primary nutrition? This closure impacts more students in/around Leesburg and surrounding neighborhoods than you might think.

Any ideas to help our neighbors? Im good at talking, not organizing
Good Morning! We are looking for a few volunteers to help as greeters on High Holidays. If you are able, please sign up for a slot.

Rabbi Micah Buck-Yael, who serves as Keshet's Director of Education and Training, shared this important piece on celebrating Pride in a world that is far from whole: https://bit.ly/35wOjsQ

"I can think of nothing more holy - or more Jewish - than celebrating Pride at a time like this. It is more important than ever to reaffirm to ourselves and to LGBTQ youth that our identities are beautiful and worthy of celebration."

Celebrating Juneteenth

As our Rabbi Aft reminds us in celebration of Juneteenth becoming a new federal holiday, let us recognize our unconscious bias and work to improve relationships.

May all of us continue to grow and build a better world.

Lag Ba'omer: At least 40 killed, over 100 injured in Mt. Meron stampede 04/30/2021

Lag Ba'omer: At least 40 killed, over 100 injured in Mt. Meron stampede

Sharing from our friends at JCRC.

Dear Friends,

As we enter a somber Shabbat for the Jewish people, we are still reeling from the tragic loss of life at Mount Meron in Israel during a celebration of Lag Ba’Omer. Many families are still searching for their loved ones, while others are caring for the seriously injured, or grieving.

The weight of this peacetime tragedy is especially heavy; it is a terrible reminder of the fragility of life. We pray for the swift recovery of those who suffered injuries, and we mourn those who lost their lives during what should have been a time of joy – especially after a year of such dread.

The celebration at Mount Meron was supposed to be an uplifting one, a moment of joy during the otherwise somber time of counting the omer. This period of time between Passover and Shavuot is mentioned in this week’s Torah portion, Emor, and is a time when many Jews refrain from joyous occasions. The exception is the 33rd day of this seven-week time period, Lag Ba’Omer, a day that marked the end of an historic plague. This year’s celebration at Mount Meron was especially poignant as it was the first large gathering since the beginning of the modern pandemic.

Yet it is encouraging and meaningful how all Israelis – regardless of their religious or political beliefs and cultural practices – have come together to help.

This morning, the JCRC made a donation to Magen David Adom to aid recovery efforts. You can make a donation here. https://afmda.org/?emci=dd42ee5c-d2a9-eb11-85aa-0050f237abef&emdi=d88799ae-d9a9-eb11-85aa-0050f237abef&ceid=22998

Shabbat Shalom,
Ron Halber
Executive Director, JCRC of Greater Washington
