RABBI AHUVA’S STATEMENT ABOUT THE GEORGE FLOYD PROTESTS

In our evening prayer we pray for a sukkat shalom, a shelter of peace, to surround us. On this evening when Richmond is under curfew in response to violent protests, we, too, pray for peace; however, we must acknowledge that in order for peace to be complete, it must be just. (Please read the rest of the statement here.)


IMPORTANT!

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all in-person events—including Shabbat services—have been replaced by virtual services or meetings until further notice. For more information, you can read the postings on our Facebook page and read the e-mails sent to Or Ami members for additional updates.
