What can we do in response to the events that took place in Charlottesville, Virginia on Saturday, August 12?
September 10 is World Suicide Prevention Day. The weekend of September 8-10, the National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention invites faith communities across the nation to pray for those whose lives have been touched by suicide. Please mark September 10 on your calendar (and plan to join us at our Friday evening service on September 8) to pray for those whose lives have been touched by suicide. If you know someone in need of assistance, please know that Beth Am is here to help. Learn more about National Day of Prayer for Faith, Hope & Life.
The High Holy Day season leads us through a process of reflection, atonement, reconciliation and celebration. We begin with S'lichot on Saturday, September 16.
