with You is the source of life (m'kor hayim);
in Your light we see light."
Congregation M’kor Hayim ("Source of Life") is
a Reform Jewish congregation in Tucson, Arizona, established in the fall of 2008. As our mission statement declares,
we are dedicated to building and sustaining a spiritual, religious, intellectual and social home based on Jewish values and
Rabbi Helen Cohn is our spiritual leader. We partner with her to create a welcoming, inclusive community. Our intent is
to remain small, so that members of our community are personally known by our rabbi and by other members of the congregation.
Our services and activities take place at the Tucson Hebrew Academy,
3888 E. River Road.
The following blessing expresses
our hopes for the congregation and all the people it serves. The blessing was written by founding member Margo Levine:
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.
