We don’t have to look any further than the fact the beginning of each new Hebrew month, ראש חודש (Rosh Chodesh), is greeted with psalms of praise and rejoicing known as Hallel, as well as special Torah and Haftarah readings. In other words, each new month marks a new time, a rebirth and a renewal in our lives.
One of our goals as a Board this past year has been to reach out and become engaged with our surrounding community. We were making a conscious effort to friend-make (a term we learned in our Sacred Places Indiana training). Well, the results of our efforts have been outstanding!
After a little more than 700 white rocks, we now have a stone on every Jewish grave in the old and new cemeteries at Highland Lawn, with help from Wilma Turetzky, Jackie Silver and Jessica Claycomb. It took us two days, but it was well worth it.
