Welcome to Our Congregation
Congregation M’kor Hayim (“Source of Life“) is a Reform Jewish congregation in Tucson, Arizona, established in the fall of 2008. We are energized by the intersections of prayer, social justice, and Jewish lifelong learning. We welcome, nurture, and celebrate our diversity. We believe who you are, who we are, and how we come together is a blessing that transforms the world.
The following blessing expresses our hopes for the congregation and all the people it serves. The blessing was written by founding member Margo Levine:
May this congregation welcome all who share our purpose, have ideas to express, and hopes to nurture.
May we gather in an atmosphere of support, respect, and friendship.
May we be mindful of our goals and avoid the distractions of self.
May we be kind in our differences and humble in our agreements.
May we be good and wise companions.
May this congregation foster an endeavor that leads to a richer and more meaningful Jewish life.
