REFORM MOVEMENT SUMMER OFFERINGS  

 

Jewish musicians have long brought excitement and entertainment to the Reform Jewish experience, performing and building community at camps and congregations around the world. During this unique and uncertain summer season, when these artists cannot take to the road as usual, we are pleased to offer a series of online concerts to continue to extend the joy and community that their music fosters.

Tune in on Sunday nights this summer at 8 PM ET, every week from June 14 – August 23, via the URJ Facebook Page to enjoy performances from some of the biggest names in Jewish music. 

Mondays through Thursdays, join us on the URJ Facebook Page as songleaders from our URJ camps lead “after-supper” song sessions.

These online performances are free to attend, thanks to the generous underwriting of individual families within our community; attendees are invited to support and show their commitment to our camps and other URJ Youth programs by making an online donation.

A Prayer of Hope During this Pandemic (Rabbi Naomi Levy)

We are frightened, God,
Worried for our loved ones,
Worried for our world.
Helpless and confused,
We turn to You
Seeking comfort, faith and hope.

Teach us God, to turn our panic into patience,
And our fear into acts of kindness and support.
Our strong must watch out for our weak,
Our young must take care of our old.
Help each one of us to do our part to halt the spread of this virus

Send strength and courage to the doctors and nurses
In the frontlines of this battle,
Fortify them with the full force of their healing powers.
Send wisdom and insight to the scientists
Working day and night across the world to discover healing treatments.
Bless their efforts, God.
Fill our leaders with the wisdom and the courage
To choose wisely and act quickly.
Help us, God, to see that we are one world,
One people
Who will rise above this pandemic together.

Send us health God,
Watch over us,
Grace us with Your love,
Bless us with Your healing light.
Hear us God,
Heal us God,
Amen.
