Judaism that Matters

NVHC is committed to social dialogue, to Judaism with a purpose: Judaism that matters. Below are some of the programs that have recently taken place at NVHC that highlight NVHC’s commitment to strengthening our community while nurturing enduring Jewish values.

Rebuilding Democracy

Challenged by Rabbi Holzman in his 5779 Kol Nidre sermon (right), NVHC is embarking on a variety of projects that seek to help us rebuild our democracy, from creating a space for open and honest conversation, to inviting engaging and relevant speakers, to action. We do this in covenant with one another – by asking questions, by sharing viewpoints, and by saying “shamati” – I have heard you. We will do this both as individuals and as a community. Together, as a Jewish community, we work to demonstrate that we can begin to overcome the polarization that has taken hold of our country.
