The Spirit of
This year the Festival theme is Tikkun Olam, Healing of the
world. As inhabitants of this world, we aim to have a positive
effect on our environment. An important Jewish value within this
context is Bal Taschit, which forbids Jews from wasting
valuable resources surrounding them. We are inviting our friends
and neighbors to join us in making this event a celebration that
promotes a better environment in which all of us can live.
