From the moment I stepped on the bimah during High Holy Days services years ago, I fell in love with Congregation Or Ami. The congregants and my clergy partners continually build a warm and supportive community. I believe that sharing the joys and struggles of life with each other is the ultimate support and care that a community can offer. Or Ami’s commitment to henaynu (caring community) demonstrates our commitment to caring for one another. I love that my office has become a hang-out space for our teens, who feel comfortable to confide their worries and share their lives with me.
