Dear Chevre/Community,

It is so good to be part of a caring community of faith in these unsettled times. We continue to show up (virtually) together, to reach out to those in need, and to celebrate the sacred cycle of our year. I count as some of the blessings in my life the grounding and guidance of Judaism and the strength of our community at the Heart of the City.

With so much uncertainty about the election and its aftermath, it is time also to pivot our gaze outward. I hope most of us have already voted -- if not, I'll echo Bobbi Cohen and Susan Thompson in suggesting that you go to the polls early and be prepared to wait until you get to vote on Election Day, November 3rd. We also have to be ready to protect the vote after the election.

There will be opportunities for everyone to be involved in this from home. Please pay close attention to our listserv in the aftermath of the election as this is where we will share information about how you can help protect the vote, if it turns out that this is needed. Our listserv is such a valuable place of connection. 

Let's help every vote count!

Love and Blessing to All,

Rabbi Julie

Congregation Leyv Ha-Ir, Heart of the City
