Welcome from Rabbi Aura
Dear Members and Friends of the Woodstock Jewish Congregation,
Shalom! I can’t wait to wish you all a Shana Tova u’Metukah, a sweet and good new year, in the coming year of 5775! I am excited and eager to discover services “under the tent,” with their special songs, sounds and moments. It is clear that so many of you cherish returning to the tent.
The theme of this year’s High Holy Days is “Or Chadash,” or “New Light.” The phrase comes from the morning liturgy, and refers to the mystical light of understanding, which lies beyond our human capacity. As we seek to welcome the new year, let us use the concept of Or Chadashas our guide. Let us be open to new growth, new pathways, new songs and new stories. May we all be blessed with a good, sweet, and fulfilling new year together.
See you under the tent!
B’vrachot rabot (With many blessings),
