On June 9, 2018 Hevreh of Southern Berkshire held its first Tzedek Circle of Honor event. This honor is bestowed upon members who exemplify Hevreh’s values and a commitment to the broader Jewish community. The Tzedek Circle of Honor reminds us of our directive from the Torah, Tzedek, Tzedek, Tirdof: Justice, justice, shall you pursue (Deut. 16:20).
The 2018 honorees were Rabbi Everett and Mary Gendler and Barry and Carol Beyer.
On Friday July 5, 2019, Hevreh will officially welcome Shelley Rolf into the Tzedek Circle of Honor with a backyard picnic celebration followed by Shabbat Services. Shelley embodies the best of what Hevreh aspires to be: her warmth, love and commitment have helped us to grow as a community.
In the spirit of our honorees, and in order to maintain our thriving Jewish community, we have established the Tzedek Circle of Honor Fund. The fund is meant to help increase, sustain and subsidize our congregation’s membership. We are a destination for Jewish life, learning, and community. This fund enables us to open our doors to embrace all who enter.
