Hanukkah: Rededication, Resilience, and Renewal

As we approach 2021, the months ahead are likely to remain challenging for all of us in many ways. We must rededicate ourselves, again and again, to renewing our inner resources, to remaining open-hearted and resilient, to shining light where there is fear or pain, and to proclaiming the miracles that continue to grace our experience.

Please join IJS on Sunday of Hanukkah, December 13, 2020, for a half-day of spiritual practice and rededication.
