NEW: Elul Stories
Submit yours by September 7
upstander: someone who acts to make right that which is recognizably wrong

bystander: a passive acceptance of circumstance

We experience moments of being both.  This year we introduce a new initiative, Elul Stories. We wish to invite members of our KI family to share with us a story in which we found ourselves to be either an upstander or bystander (perhaps both) as we prepare for the New Year.  Approaching the Hebrew month of Elul and the introspection it invites, we look forward to collecting stories in a booklet to be shared on the High Holy Days.  Click here to share your story and to see examples of others’ stories.
