A time to look forward with anticipation. A time to reflect, individually and collectively.

The Weinberg Foundation wishes you, and those close to your heart, Chag Sameach! Shana tova u’metuka!

Too many of our neighbors have basic needs that remain unmet, and too many of our communities are plagued by violence, often rooted in hatred and prejudice. Our entire world often seems broken and unfamiliar.

We pray for continued healing in every way, while also giving thanks for and celebrating what is good. Despite the many challenges that still confront us, we move forward with hope and resolve. In the face of anger and division, we choose to come together to express love and understanding. In this season, in particular, one section of the Mishnah reminds us that we are compelled not only to acknowledge—but to act:

“לא עליך המלאכה לגמור ואין אתה בן-חורין להיבטל ממנה”
“You are not obligated to complete the work, but neither are you free to desist from it.”
Pirkei Avot, 2:21

The trustees and staff of The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation wish you a sweet and joyous year. Thank you for all you do to practice justice and mercy and to fill the world with acts of loving kindness.
