We are pleased to announce that Rabbi Bess Wohlner will be taking over as the lead clergy for our partnership with the Memphis Interfaith Coalition for Action and Hope (MICAH).
Thanks to our co-chairs Janis Finan, Matthew Hollon, and Karin Rubnitz for coordinating our efforts on the three focus areas: Education, Immigration and Inter-Cultural Equity, and Economic Equity.
Please contact Rabbi Bess if you would lik more information about MICAH or to learn how to get involved. We are also looking for Temple teens to get involved in the MICAH Youth Council.
“It is not your responsibility to finish the work [of perfecting the– Banni Tarfon Taught (Pirkei Avot 2:16)
world], but you are not free to desist from it either.”
MICAH (Memphis Interfaith Coalition for Action and Hope) is a coalition of faith-based and community organizations joining together to give a more powerful voice for issues of justice in our city. We will organize and speak to our community and its leaders, always seeking to “do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with our God.” The purpose of MICAH is not to replace each congregation or community organization’s efforts, but instead to amplify the voice and the impact by working together interdependently.
