Echo Chambers Instead of Conversation:

The Biblical Roots of Our Divided Society

Judy Klitsner

With thanks to the Lodzer Sisterhood.
 
"Stop trying to win the argument and rule over your brother. The basic psychological truth is that it is a waste of valuable energy and time to try to change the people around us.

The most effective road to peace is to make ourselves... don't try to make other people more like us but make us more like us. To be the best versions of ourselves. Do our personal best and the rest is likely to follow."
Judy Klitzner

Making a difference to our shul
The Board along with Rabbi Eli are setting a new direction for our shul. "We are making changes to shul services and programming, and becoming more of a community." The Board discusses procedures and suggested innovations on a monthly basis. "We're not alone in this and would greatly appreciate your help."
If you have any suggestions please give them, in writing to Sarah, and, if you wish to speak at our monthly Monday night Board meeting about your ideas, concerns, or interests, again, please let Sarah know. 
"It is your shul. We want and need your input."
