Rabbi Joshua Davidson in Haaretz: Will Israel Care if Yet More American Jews Walk Away?

“For 25 years as a congregational rabbi in America, I have sought to strengthen Jewish identity by deepening commitment to Jewish peoplehood and the Jewish state. Though gratifying, the work has never been easy. Now developments in Israel are making it even harder.”

Join us for Gather Shabbat

A very special Shabbat service to recognize everyone who has participated in GatherGather Family, and Gather Mingle over the last three years. Gather is Emanu-El’s lay-led, small groups initiative that brings together congregants from across our community to learn, connect, and grow. At this uplifting service, Gatherers will receive a blessing from Rabbi Davidson.
