Though the terrain may be uncertain, we are guided by our deep commitments to justice, learning, and action. As we walk hand-in-hand into 2021, let us make this year one filled with purpose, joy, nourishment, and a renewed sense of hope.
As you plan your communications for the coming year, make sure you take advantage of these resources that are available to your URJ member congregation
