Our Nefesh community has begun a community-wide process grappling with Israel and Palestine. We have collectively participated in a survey and heard an overwhelming interest in internal, heart-centered, community programming, and education along the spectrum. We want to be a  community where we can learn and discuss in ways that are respectful, compassionate, and brave. We want to make space for differences, embrace multiple truths, center the humanity of people impacted, and let the middot guide us, as our moral compass, in this as in all aspects of life. We particularly feel it is important to start our journey with Kin and want each of you to know that we are here for your experiences and connections to this community-centered process.
