I am delighted to welcome you to Kesher, our new semi-annual online
newsletter for alumni, students, faculty, administration, and friends
of Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion.
This electronic publication, disseminated via the Internet, enables
us to transcend time and space in linking our HUC-JIR family throughout
We invite you to learn more about the extraordinary individuals
who constitute our HUC-JIR community. We encourage you to share
your news with us in future editions of Kesher.
Rabbi David Ellenson
