“If I am not for myself, then who will be for me? And if I am only for myself, then what am I? And if not now, when?” –Hillel
This is the time for us to step up. This is our now. No more procrastination, or expecting someone else to step up and do it for us.
Building a strong Jewish community here in Phoenix helps build a stronger Jewish community worldwide, and makes Israel stronger. In turn, a stronger Israel helps sustain Jewish communities worldwide.
To us, it is important to build a strong Jewish community – creating opportunities to sustain Jewish life through tzedakah and tikkun olam; creating Jewish educational opportunities and supporting our Jewish communal organizations; creating a legacy gift for future generations.
Arik Einstein sang: Ani v’ata n’shanei et ha’olam – You and I will change the world. As a community works together, we can obtain our goals to create a sustainable future here in Phoenix, around the world and in Israel.
We are not just building Jewish community for our children, or our grandchildren. We are building for our grandchildren’s, grandchildren.
