Hineinu, our ongoing commitment to strengthen our community and recognize the kedusha (sanctity) of one another, provides opportunities and experiences that will bring us closer to one another. Working together, both inside and outside the dome, we create ways for our congregants to find connections, create relationships, and nurture and support one another and build community.
