If ever we were called to be our best self, regardless of circumstances, surely it is this year.
Each year the Pardes Hannah community selects a theme to guide us through the Days of Awe. This year’s theme is “Stand Where You Are and Serve with Love.”
We focus this year on Being Present: Lih’yot Nokhah.
In addition to the traditional themes of turning and renewal, the focus of this year's high holy days is on the theme of forgiveness.
Purify our hearts so we may serve You---and serve our communities and serve our planet--in truth.
Our theme this year is Gosher Gesharim: Creating webs of radical connection.
This year’s theme is Mishkan/Sanctuary—Encountering the Sacred in Space and Time.
