“Whatever the faiths you have known or the flags of your heritage, you are welcome here. Whatever the circumstances of your life and whomever you love, you are welcome here.

Whether you ran in here today on little feet, or ambled, or strolled, or rolled in, you are welcome here.

Whether you lean to the right or to the left, or like it somewhere in the middle; whether you are a believer or a questioner, or a questioning believer, you are welcome to this makom shalom, this place of peace, joy, and hope, Congregation P’nai Tikvah…”

(Based on a greeting used by Rev. Kevin Tarsa, shared by Rabbi Chava Bahle, and further refined by Rabbi Yocheved Mintz)

Community Prayer

In Your Image

We are made in Your image with all the colors of the rainbow.  
All our faces are reflected in You.

Help us to be mindful
That when we look into the eyes of another, when we speak with and pray for others,
We are connecting to You.

Each of us carries that Divine Spark,
That flash of light, reflecting and mirroring each other and You.
Bless us with unity
And a sense of belonging.
We are One.

Amein

Rental Assistance Information from Nevadans for the Common Good

Here is what we know: 

1) There is $30 million from the State and $30 million from Clark County allocated toward residential rental assistance and it will run out fast. Anyone who wants to apply should do so as soon as possible. It will be distributed on a first come, first served basis.

2) For people who live in Clark County, you can find out more here. You will need to contact a service provider listed on the page to apply. Attached here is more detailed information on providers who will be able to assist you more specifically.

3) Here is the State of Nevada CARES Housing Assistance Program though the link for Clark County residents has not yet been established (as of 07/17). It is likely that when the link is established, it will also lead to the CHAT program linked above. For Washoe County and rural counties, the links are live.

4) For news stories on the program including eligibility information, you can find out more here or here

If you have questions about the programs, please contact someone connected to the programs. NCG does not have additional programmatic information.
