Infusing our Fall with Joy and Light
We hope 5781 has greeted you with hope and the promise of a happy and healthy year. We invite you to spend several Fridays out of every month with your “Wexner Family” to learn together before Shabbat in our new Torah Series, “From Sukkot to Hannukah – Infusing our Fall with Joy and Light.” We’ll hear from a variety of beloved Torah scholars every other week, providing inspiration and support during these continued challenging and tumultuous times.
