Hazon has played a substantial role in helping me refine my rabbinate and enliven the mission of my shul.
—Rabbi Marc Soloway, Board of Directors & Colorado Advisory Board
The memories and friendships created on this journey will stay with me forever.
When we gather together to hear each other's stories – that's the best of what this holiday can be.
