Shanah Tovah and our best wishes for 5769! The economic news in recent days has been frightening and no one knows what lies ahead. However, our wishes for this new year do not change. We wish for all of us a year of health and joy. We wish for all the world that this is a year in which peace is made. And what we know is that, no matter what the future may bring, that we are stronger as part of a community. We hope that being part of the “all of us” that is Kulanu brings you learning and growth, new friends and renewed ties with old, and a renewed sense of wonder at the diversity of the Jewish world. At the same time, as we close last year, we ask your forgiveness and understanding if any action of ours hurt you in any way.
