Sounding the Shofar: What’s Your Intentions? with Chaplain Bruce Feldstein, MD, BCC, and Rabbi Daniel Isaacson

The High Holidays are a time for reflection and resolve. Our lives are moving quickly, and not always in the direction we’d like. Let us gather in this time of uncertainty and turn inward. What do you want for yourself in the year to come? What is your intention? Join us as we find hope and strength to navigate into our future. Watch the video >
