years ago, in 1964, the Civil Rights movement was in
full swing. Some of the issues from a half-century ago
are still with us. UUs have a history of being involved in working for Civil Rights. The Rev. Edington and Hoover

its current conditions and calls to action.

In this fresh collection of thoughtful essays, 20 writers explore the blessings and challenges of Jewish Unitarian Universalist identity and community. While there has been a long and consistent presence of Jewish culture and people in Unitarian Universalism, this poignant anthology is the first to give voice to this community's sturggles, wisdom, and contributions. Essayists include born Jews who came to Unitarian Universalism, Unitarian Universalists who adopted Judaism as a spiritual path, and Unitarian Universalists who have encountered Judaism in diverse ways.
Rev. Dara's essay is titled "Tambourines and Teshuva."
