We celebrate our Jewish Heritage,  study and practice our tradition, and search for spiritual meaning.

On Sunday we enjoyed "Jewish Music for a Summer Sunday Morning” with world-class singer/songwriter Bernice Lewis and her daughter Mariah. It was a journey of song and story, traditional and contemporary. The event was sponsored by CBI & the Jewish Federation of the Berkshires. Thanks to Pattie Lipman for organizing the event.
Here are some great links on the High Holidays from the Union for Reform Judaism.
