As we prepare to enter into the holy days of Passover, let’s first take a moment to reflect on the work we’ve all done throughout the past few weeks. You have been willing to lead, and in doing so, you have helped make very narrow places, the literal translation of the word mitzrayim, a little less narrow.

Throughout Jewish history, in every place where we Jews have lived we have turned to Psalms or Tehillim to express the deepest yearnings of our hearts.

May the One who blessed our mothers and our fathers, our parents and our ancestors, bless the organizers and participants in the URJ Biennial 2017.
