We invite you to be part of a new Friday night service called Nashuva.
Nashuva means “We will return.”

We all have a need to return—to passion, to our dreams, to our essential goodness, to love, to our own souls, to our God. We spend so much time trying to succeed or to simply manage the chaos in our lives, that we rarely make the time to reflect and uncover our true possibility. Our souls are hungry for more. Nashuva is a haven from the hectic lives we lead. A place where we can leave behind our worries, receive the spiritual infusion we have been looking for, and emerge transformed. Nashuva is a time to pray, to sing, to be still and listen to the voice of your soul.

But the goal of prayer isn’t only personal peace. At Nashuva we believe that prayer leads us to action. It reminds us that we are here to heal this broken world. Nashuva is a service that leads to service. On the first Friday of each month we pray together, on the third Sunday of each month we serve together to bring light to some dark corner of our city.

We live in a time when religious intolerance is tearing our world apart. We are grateful to Reverend Kirsten Linford-Steinfeld who has opened the doors of her church and her heart to us. Our two communities will be working side by side on our monthly service project. We know that the joining of our communities in social action will be a blessing not only to our city but to ourselves.

Nashuva is just beginning. We invite you to be part of its evolution and growth. If you have friends who you think would be interested in Nashuva, please forward this invitation to them.

Wishing you blessings and joy,

Rabbi Naomi Levy and Nashuva
