Jenn: In 2006, I began my sisterhood journey because leaders of my sisterhood deemed it was time for “new blood.” They were tired of always being in charge. At the time, I did not hold a position on the Board and had only assisted on one fundraiser.

Parashat R’eih

Michelle Scheinkopf
The pandemic has offered us an opportunity “to see” (R’eih) more clearly what our blessings are. These past two and a half years have given us a moment to pause and consider what is truly important in our lives. ... My synagogue is the central meeting place where I get to practice and live my Judaism with my temple community. To belong and to be connected to something very powerful and to belong to others gives me great meaning and fulfillment. My central meeting place, my synagogue, is forever a blessing.
