The Hebrew word Hazmanah means “invitation.” You are cordially invited to get involved with Temple De Hirsch Sinai's Hazmanah group, which uses the principals of community organizing to help foster relationships within our congregation and within the broader Seattle community. Our mission involves using the power of our Temple membership to ACT on issues that matter to us. As a result, we strengthen relationships with each other and Temple.
Temple De Hirsch Sinai, along with other Reform congregations throughout the United States, is exploring new ways to organize within our congregation and make a difference in our community. The URJ (Union for Reform Judaism) calls this movement “Just Congregations.”
In Seattle, the agency with which we work is called Sound Alliance, a consortium of religious organizations, community groups, and labor unions allied for the common good. Sound Alliance has identified a number of community issues of concern: Immigration and Civil Rights; Housing; Health Care; Education; and Sustainable jobs and the environment.
If you have a passion for one of these areas, or another passion that you feel is not being adequately served by the community, then our Hazmanah group may be for you. Please contact Rabbi Alan Cook at 206.315.7427 or email@example.com to arrange a meeting with a Hazmanah “veteran.”
