Hundreds of IJS supporters joined us on Tuesday, June 7, 2022 for our Evening of Gratitude, honoring and thanking Jewish spiritual leaders. We are eager to share one of the highlights of the celebration, and we hope that you will consider making a donation to support our work.

Alison Kur, Executive Director of Jewish Living at Temple Beth Elohim in Wellesley, MA, was one of the evening’s featured leaders. She spoke about the warm mutual support fostered by her IJS community, providing emotional sustenance in a difficult year. She also emphasized the critical importance of spiritual practice in allowing congregants to know and be known by one another:

“Spirituality is about nurturing my soul and giving my soul to others”
