THANK YOU FROM DEVORAH

I want to thank the congregation for the wonderful gift of acknowledgement and gift card in December. I am honored to lead services for the Jewish community in Great Falls. Being a Jew in Montana comes with the joy of being needed and to me the responsibility of leading and being involved as we are able. Each member matters and makes a difference. I hope to continue leading services for many years to come. May we continue to grow and learn together as a community.

In honor of Go Red for Women, please try to wear red at this week’s services.

Devorah Werner

IN CELEBRATION OF JEWISH ECOLOGY AWARENESS DAY

In advance of the upcoming Tu B’shevat holiday, the Montana Jewish Project (MJP) is so excited to spread the word about Congregation Har Shalom’s (Missoula) new book study group, which will be discussing Rabbi Ellen Bernstein’s “The Splendor of Creation: A Biblical Ecology.”

Focusing on distinctly Jewish approaches to the current environmental crises, this group will meet virtually each Monday at 7pm, starting on January 23, for eight sessions of discussion-based study, facilitated by Dr. Jim Hatley (Professor of Environmental Studies at Salisbury University) and Kaleb Cohen (current M.A. student in Environmental Philosophy at the University of Montana).

We’d like to help built an opportunity for Jews across Montana TO engage in this. If you are interested in participating in this book study group, please reach out to Kaleb at kaleb.cohen@umontana.edu
