In this week’s message, I highlight some milestones in our community, including the 60th anniversary of Temple Shalom in Middletown and the upcoming 75th anniversary of Providence Hebrew Day School. And I’m excited to share with you the first two episodes of Jewish Rhode Island’s podcast, Chutzpah!.
As we slowly return to pre-pandemic life, our goal is not to return to a new normal. It’s to create a new reality, one that reimagines what we can be now and into the future. We are fortunate that our community has so many wonderful institutions that we can build from, and I’m confident that this new reality we build together will result in an even stronger, more vibrant community.
Until next time, I wish you a safe, peaceful, and joyous Shabbat.
