Letter from Rabbi Chai Levy

Shalom and welcome to Congregation Netivot Shalom!

Living through the Covid pandemic has highlighted for all of us the importance of community, and I’m thrilled that you’re considering joining us. I look forward to sharing the beauty of Jewish life with you. There are so many ways to get involved; whether you’re interested in Jewish study, ritual, social justice, or simply being part of an extended Jewish family, we warmly welcome you!

Netivot Shalom’s unique strength lies in our participatory ethos. We continue to live by our founding principles of participatory, egalitarian Judaism, where our members are empowered to take ownership over their Jewish lives and experiences and to create the community they desire for themselves. As rabbi, I serve to guide our community’s vision and direction so that our members can come together in shared purpose. It is also my privilege, as rabbi, to guide our members through life’s transitions and celebrations, whether it’s birth or death, illness or healing, b’nei mitzvah or wedding, and everything in between.

I look forward to getting to know you and to helping you find your place in our wonderful community. Wherever you might be on your Jewish journey, it is my hope that Netivot Shalom will be a warm home for you to deepen your Jewish life and to connect to others.

Rabbi Chai Levy
