ON SITE & ZOOM. Through our daily lives, we take part in the act of creation. The Jewish holiday of Rosh Hashanah, called “the birthday of the world,” reminds us of our ability and responsibility to co-create the world, and challenges our complacency with the way things are. It reminds us to experience wonder, which the Jewish philosopher and theologian Abraham Joshua Heschel called “radical amazement.” Rosh Hashanah kicks off a personal and community journey, in which we examine our past, present, and future. What will come of it? Led by Pam Berenbaum. We shared our plate with the Brigid Alliance a reproductive rights organization getting people to abortion care whatever it takes.
