Welcome to 2019

Hands on Minds on Hearts open

“Nachshon’s gift was the ability not only to see the possibility of the moment, but to believe in it strongly enough to be willing to risk wading into the water.”

Rabbi Adam Greenwald

Welcome to 2019! A new year ushers in endless opportunities for new beginnings.

At LEV Children’s Museum, we are grabbing hold of opportunity and are ready for growth and development!

Nachshon, from the tribe of Judah, is known for stepping into the waters of the roaring Sea of Reeds before it split apart. The Talmud tells us that Nachshon was the brave soul who waded into the water… to his knees, his waist, his neck… and just as the water was about to enter his nostrils, the sea split in half. Through Nachshon’s bravery, we learn that liberation comes to the courageous.

Next week, I am attending the ARJE (Association of Reform Jewish Educators) Conference in DC. The theme this year is The Nachshon Effct: Facing the Sea of Change. It is clear how greatly the Jewish landscape is changing all over the country. As Jewish professionals, we need to meet the challenge and rise to the change.  We need to grab onto our inner Nachshon and believe deeply enough in something to risk wading into the water.

I am in! And I hope you are ready to join me on this great adventure!

Come meet me and spend time digging and discovering with LEV at the Community Tu B’shvat event at TY Park on January 27th. I can’t wait to see you there!

Just recently, we received our 501C3 approval and are now approximately 1/2 of the way to raising the funds to begin construction on our first (of many) tiny homes! Join us in building the future of Judaism. Any amount helps (donate here).

Look deep within you to find your own inner Nachshon and be the change you wish to see – you can do it!!!
