Together, we celebrate dedication, courage, freedom, blessings and the holy community that gathers throughout the year in our Makom. Nisim gadolim korim po - great miracles are happening here. May we take the time out of our busy schedules to appreciate the daily miracles in our lives, and cherish the time we spend together. Retell the stories. Sing the songs. Share the light. Spin a dreidel.
