News & Highlights

A Prayer for Israel

Many of us are deeply concerned about the escalating conflict in Israel. We mourn those who have lost their lives, express solidarity with our brothers and sisters living in Israel, and pray for all innocent people caught in the crossfire.  
In the weeks to come, as we prepare for Tisha b'Av,  the High Holy Days and a renewed year for us, for Israel, and for the world, we hope to increase our community's meaningful engagement with Israel.  If you would like to be a part of an "Israel Hevre" which will work together to offer learning opportunities, books to read and discuss, ways to offer support, and even plan a congregational trip, please be in touch with Rabbi Shoshana.
Meanwhile, let us join together with those who pray around the world:
A Prayer for Israel:
We are in the West and our thoughts and prayers are in the East, with our brothers, sisters, and all of our family in Israel.
Oseh Shalom Bimromav Hu Ya'aseh Shalom, Aleinu ve-al Kol Yisrael v'al Kol Yoshvei Teveil.  
May the one who creates harmony above make peace for us and for all Israel, and for all who dwell on earth.
Rabbi Ben and Rabbi Shoshana

Fresh Air Shabbat Hike

Saturday, August 2, 10:15am

Hewlett Gulch

Please join us for a hike as we celebrate Shabbat services on Hewlett Gulch in scenic Poudre Canyon. This trail offers a little something for everything - wildlife viewing, remains of old homesteads, stream crossings and abundant wildflowers (in season).  This is a gentle, 3 mile hike that is a short drive from Fort Collins.  Rabbi Shoshana will lead the service. If you have questions, please contact Lois Fink. 


Shabbat at Home
