Calling All Members!

Hill Havurah is seeking candidates to fill a few committees and 2-year positions
on the Havurah board. It is our hope that the process will yield a diverse board and committee involvement with representation from individuals/families that are in different places in life and whose interests range from our preschool programs to Sages, from Yavneh to community service, from religious observance to adult education. We are also seeking people with different professional and life skills.
 
To learn more about our Committees, read HERE.
If you are interested in joining a committee or two, please send an email to nominations@hillhavurah.org with a few sentences about yourself and your
interests in each Committee.
 
You can learn more about Board participation and expectations HERE.
Currently, the Board meets on the second Tuesday of every month at 7:30 pm.
Each committee meets separately from the Board and provides the Board with
periodic updates.

    Interfaith Text Study with Mt. Moriah Baptist Church
    Wednesday, Feb 5th 7:00p to 8:30p
    Rabbi Hannah and Pastor Dalton of Mount Moriah Baptist Church are offering a special three-part interfaith text study on the holy land and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Hill Havurah and Mt. Moriah will be coming together to learn, share, listen, and reflect on this topic that's so close to our hearts and so far from polite conversation. Our conversations will be enriched with scriptural texts as well as the words of ancient rabbinic, medieval, and modern thinkers. We're hoping that participants will be able to commit to attending all three sessions, as we will be building community and understanding over the course of the three evenings. Please feel free to direct questions to Rabbi Hannah at rabbihannah@hillhavurah.org -- and RSVP to Rabbi Hannah, cc'd to Danny Tomares (danny.tomares@hillhavurah.org). We're hoping that participants will be able to commit to attending all three sessions, as we will be building community and understanding over the course of the three evenings. Here are the dates and locations: Wednesday, 1/8/2020, 7:00-8:30pm at Reformation (212 East Capitol St., NE) Wednesday, 1/22/2020, 7:00-8:30pm at Mt. Moriah (1636 East Capitol St., NE) Wednesday, 2/5/2020, 7:00-8:30pm at Reformation (212 East Capitol St., NE)
