After a terrible week of violence and loss of life in our country, our hearts are heavy and broken.


We stand in solidarity & mourning with our brothers & sisters in Gilroy, El Paso and Dayton.


In memory of those we lost, we will continue our work toward Tikkun Olam – Repairing Our Broken World.


“Turn away from evil & do good; Seek peace & pursue it.” - Book of Psalms, 34:15
