Shanah Tovah from MAZON: 2020/5781 High Holy Day Gift from Us to You

This High Holy Days season, we have a small gift for you and your community, and it comes in the package of an animated short. We hope the reflections contained in the video below — from Abby Leibman, our CEO and President; Rabbi Joel Pitkowsky, MAZON board member and rabbi of Congregation Beth Sholom (NJ); and Rabbi Dara Frimmer, MAZON partner and rabbi of Temple Isaiah (CA) — draw welcome connections between the deeply personal experience of the High Holy Days and the communal responsibility to pursue tzedek.

We invite you to watch the video — on your own, with your loved ones, or as part of a High Holy Days service or learning session — and then reflect on the questions in our discussion guide.

Want to share your reflections? Check out our social media image bank below to post and encourage others to participate.
