“Can two walk together without having met?” (Amos 3:3)
Building bridges of dialogue. Strengthening democracy within our community.
Join us as we commemorate the 25th anniversary of the assassination of Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin z"l.
This event draws its inspiration from the "Asefa Israelit" (Israeli Assembly) led by a wide range of youth movements in Israel.
The program includes separate facilitated dialogue circles (Youth & Adults) focused on the challenges facing Israeli democracy and pluralism in the North American Jewish community and Israel. The youth program will be led by a variety of leaders from different youth movements across North America, and the adult program is comprised of various guest lecturers. At the conclusion of the youth program, there will be a short memorial ceremony.
The Jewish community across North America is coming together to support democracy and human equality as central in our Jewish values. Now is the time to turn to each other and spread this message. Together, we will remember the assassination of Yitzhak Rabin, and stand up for democracy!
We invite you to a special event commemorating the 25th Yitzhak Rabin Memorial Day
Sunday, November 8th, 3-4:30pm

Thank you all for coming out for Apple Picking. We had a great time!
Apples (and pumpkins) were picked, we had some fun contests and an election peula for tzofim. We were happy to meet old and new faces in this amazing weather.

This Sunday, we had our first in-person gathering in Central Park, where families and friends came to celebrate Sukkot!
Following a round of introductions, chanichim split up into teams and got to build their own sukkot out of cardboard, markers, and whatever they could find in the woods. We had a round of vegetable showdown where they competed to see who was the best at imitating a lulav, etrog, hadas, and aravah. We finished it off with what our ancestors tried to do for 40 years: We found Israel! The flag, at least. The chanichim had to find the flag blindfolded.
After the games, we spread our picnic blankets on the ground and got eating. We said our goodbyes and started getting ready for the apple picking ken on October 18th!
