One of our efforts to offer joint programming for Congregation Or Chadash and Temple Emanu-El was the Second Day Rosh Hashanah services. Rabbi Louchheim and Rabbi Appel led services together. Many congregants from Or Chadash joined Temple in services on Tuesday, and all together we were nearly 100 individuals sharing in a wonderful experience. Several of the Ambassadors were able to attend services, and we enjoyed being a part of the collaboration, joyfulness, and overall hamish feel that our Rabbis exuded. Thank you to everyone who attended and we look forward to several other events where we can join together in expressing our joy of Reform Judaism in Tucson.
The Ambassadors are on a brief hiatus and will be meeting again after Yom Kippur. At that time we’ll review the reasons that have brought us to this point and juncture in our congregations. Until then, we wish each and every one of you a joyous and meaningful High Holy Days.
