Anthills – Sandra Vazquez, Mexico
Have you ever wondered how big cities, projects,
associations, and even ant hills were made? It did
not require just one individual, but a group that could
contribute something meaningful to them. Let’s make
the change together!

Domestic Peace – Sarath Chandra, India
Change begins at home. The next generations are
watching. Show them Peace.

I Am – Yintao Gong, PR China
A stop motion short that responds to the racism against the Asian community. Women and men need to work together and learn how to make a difference, how to make a change.

A Rosh Hashanah Letter From JCSI

Dear friends and colleagues,

As we prepare to celebrate Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, we wanted to take a moment to share our heartfelt hopes and wishes for the year ahead, while acknowledging our gratitude for having the privilege to celebrate in good health.

This past year has brought more than its fair share of turmoil and uncertainties. But, these challenges also revealed the best in so many of us.  People came together, sometimes at great personal risk, to help others in need.  And, of course, we ended the year on a high note, with a historic peace accord between Israel, The United Arab Emirates and Bahrain.  May all of humanity go from strengths to strengths. 

Although we are unable to congregate for Rosh Hashanah this weekend,we nonetheless look forward to the coming days, weeks, and months with excitement, fueled by the hope that the pain of 5780 will be replaced by health, prosperity, and positivity in 5781.

 

Wishing peace upon you, and upon all your loved ones.

Shana Tova U’Metukah!

To a good and sweet year!
