We enter into a new Jewish year with the twin goals of looking back and “hoping” forward. We look back on the year that is ending and we take stock of our own efforts to be better human beings. We take a moral inventory, we reach out to loved ones and seek to repair harms we may have caused, and we reflect on how we handled the big and small challenges that came our way. We also look forward – or “hope” forward – imagining how we can learn from mistakes, how we can recommit to our best ideals, and how we can support each other in a spirit of shared responsibility and shared fate. Whether you’ve been part of the String of Pearls community for years or are just joining us for the first time, you’re warmly welcome. Whether you’re Jewish, Jew-ish, or a person of a different faith tradition who is part of the Jewish community, you’re welcome to be with us in what will be a predominantly online experience, with a few opportunities to gather outdoors in-person for those so inclined. May the coming year bring blessings of justice, peace, meaning and hope.


-Rabbi Maurice Harris
