Buy or borrow this book today, (don't procrastinate) and get ready to join Rabbi Stephanie and Erica Wisner for a riveting discussion about race and the Jewish Community. Continuing this important conversation will be a part of our Heshbon HaNefesh, our accounting for our souls as we prepare for High Holy Days. 

We wanted to alert you to a wonderful opportunity to mark the coming Jewish New Year season with the WRN rabbis.

Elul is the Hebrew month leading up to the High Holy Days. During this month we are encouraged to take a deep look inwards at how we have responded to the blessings and challenges of the past year. It is a time for heshbon hanefesh, an accounting of the soul, where we examine who we are and who we wish to be in the coming year. It is a time of self-reflection, forgiveness, and exploration.

Join our WRN rabbis for a month of inspiring video teachings, sent via email, that will provide you with short kavanot, spiritual offerings to help you reflect, explore, and contemplate as you continue your journey into 5781, the Jewish new year.

This video project is curated by WRN member Rabbi Stephanie Kramer, who serves as senior associate rabbi of Congregation Shomrei Torah in Santa Rosa, CA. And the graphic design was created by CST member Susan Bailyn!! 

Wishing you and your loved ones many blessings, especially health. And thank you for your continued support of WRN!
