– A “hybrid” concert –
“A Time to Embrace”
A month away from the Jewish High holidays, we reflect on the year that is leaving and we ask for a New year full of healing and renewal.
‘How can we determine the hour of dawn when the night ends and the day begins?’
‘When you can look into the face of another human being, and you have enough light in you to recognize your sister or your brother.
— From “Finding my Way Home” by Henri Nouwen
