Dear friends, I’m very pleased to invite you to a “meet and greet” with your UUJA Board, in conjunction with General Assembly. This Thursday and Friday, we will be on Zoom during the “caucus” time. You DO NOT have to be attending GA, or registered for GA, to attend!

Your Board would like to hear from you. How are we doing? What would you like to see in the coming year? What are you doing locally? How is the UU movement is doing in promoting Jewish awareness? Have you experienced anti-Semitism within UUism or your congregation?

Please Zoom in at any time between 11 AM and Noon, CENTRAL Daylight Saving Time (so noon in the east, 9 AM Pacific, etc.). Here are the links:

"The world stands on three things:
On Truth,
On Judgement,
and On Peace;
as it is stated (Zech 8:16) Execute the judgement of truth and peace in your gates."
Commentary:
"Truth - According to Maimonides, truth refers to the two kinds of human perfection: intellectual and ethical.
On Judgement. Maimonides explains judgment in terms of a judicial system, the best institution to maintain order in society. Bartinoro understands judgement as justice - to acquit the innocent and condemn the guilty"

Let us remember and celebrate the people who resist fascism in the past and in the present. Their lives, their courage points the way towards liberation, even when they don't survive to see the day. Today, we remember Munich University students, Sophie Scholl, Hans Scholl, Alexander Schmorell, Christoph Probst, Willi Graf, and their professor, Kurt Huber. #Resist
