President’s Message 
Kerrie Zurovsky

I find myself unable to write about anything other than last week’s tragic school shooting in Uvalde. I am many things – a wife, daughter, friend, graphic designer, synagogue president – but first and foremost, I am a mother.

Antisemitism Finally Hits Home for Me

Antisemitism Finally Hits Home for Me jemerman September 29, 2022

In the many years (57 to be exact) that I have been in an interfaith marriage, I felt somehow removed from antisemitism. I was raised in a Roman Catholic family, and, while there were a few comments from aunts and uncles when I got engaged, it was the 1960s, and I was in love. I believed we would figure it out as we went along.

Rebuilding After the Storms of Life: An Interview with Rabbi Joseph Meszler

Rebuilding After the Storms of Life: An Interview with Rabbi Joseph Meszler jemerman September 22, 2022

We sat down with Rabbi Joseph Meszler, author of "The Sukkah in the Storm: A Sukkot Story," to discuss the ways this story teaches children about strength, resilience, community, and asking for help.

Keeping Family Close, Regardless of Distance

Keeping Family Close, Regardless of Distance jemerman September 21, 2022

As I boarded the plane to Israel in the summer of 2002 for my first year of rabbinical school at HUC in Jerusalem, my mother said, "Please, just don't meet an Israeli." As soon as the plane touched down at Ben Gurion airport, I knew that I was home. A few months later, I met that Israeli. From our first conversation, he understood that I was studying to be a rabbi, and I understood that he wanted to live only in Israel.

A Vegan Rosh HaShanah for a Sweet New Year

A Vegan Rosh HaShanah for a Sweet New Year jemerman September 14, 2022

I am vegan because I am Jewish. Everything that led me to a vegan practice came from my childhood where I kept kosher, learned by asking thoughtful questions, and practiced daily rituals like hand washing and reciting brachot that brought intention to aspects of daily life.
