Rosh Hashanah 5775 Greetings

Wednesday, September 17, 2014

Dear friends,

Throughout North America, Israel, and around the world, our students and alumni are leading – in synagogues, on college campuses, on military bases, in hospitals, and more.

Wherever Jews are celebrating the High Holy Days, they are there – just as they have been serving the global Jewish people for the past 140 years.

Your support helps make this possible, and we are grateful for your steadfast partnership.

On behalf of the entire HUC-JIR community, we wish you and your loved ones a shanah tovah u’metukah.

May this new year bring all of us closer to friends and family, and may our world and all its citizens draw nearer to contentment and peace.

Rabbi Aaron D. Panken, Ph.D.

Chair, Board of Governors
