- 2016: Balancing judgement with love
- 2016: Pursue justice so that you may truly live (at T’ruah: the Rabbinic Call for Human Rights)

Now that it’s Elul (the month leading up to Rosh Hashanah), we’ll begin adding Psalm 27 to our Shabbat davenen. Our congregational melodies for Psalm 27 include Israel Katz’s “Achat Sha’alti,” Nava Tehila’s “Lach Amar Libi,” and R’ David Markus’ “Lulei He’emanti.”
We hope to see you soon at CBI!
