Friday, May 24
5:30 pm Kabbalat Shabbat services (Main Sanctuary)
7:00 pm Contemporary Shabbat services (Martin Meyer Sanctuary)
Elisheva Mazya is the CEO of Ruach Chadasha (New Spirit) which was founded to fight the negative migration of educated young-adults from Jerusalem. The founders of New Spirit wanted to restore Jerusalem to its rightful place as a young, pluralistic and vibrant city – the capital of the Jewish people. At New Spirit, the aim is to improve Jerusalem’s image by developing projects that simultaneously respond to the needs of the young-adults in the city and empower them to be agents on change. The projects relate to areas of professional networking and employment, affordable housing, fostering the arts and culture, Jewish renewal and building communities of people that volunteer in their neighborhoods.
June 7, 6:30 pm, Main Sanctuary * This will be the only service of the evening.
