Vision

We envision a sacred way for Judaism to provide a moral framework for people to address life’s enduring questions. Judaism is the framework for how people form and practice their values. Judaism’s traditions and teachings will be relevant to modern life, accessible, and inclusive for all who want to connect.

Mission

CoHere helps adults and children see their world through a Jewish lens, creating moral, meaningful/purpose-driven, and community-filled lives by providing affordable, home-based Jewish educational and spiritual experiences with a rabbi and other Jewish specialists.

 

Rabbi Ari Moffic, Founder of Cohere

Ari Poster Moffic was ordained in 2007 from Hebrew Union College. She has an undergraduate degree from Indiana University in Religious Studies, during which time she got slightly obsessed with Buddhism. She then went on to Baltimore to complete a Masters Degree in Jewish Education from Baltimore Hebrew University. She has been the Director of InterfaithFamily/Chicago and spends her full-time rabbinate focused on supporting interfaith couples and families who are exploring Jewish life. Her husband is also a Reform Rabbi in Highland Park and they are the proud parents of a 9 and 11 year old. She is open to mall walking or meeting for a coffee and discussing how it is someone from Boston now lives in Chicago with no ocean.


About the artwork

by Chai Wolfman

Sewing in my work is a symbol of
comfort,
connection,
and
warmth.

 

I think about the threads sewn through this painting
as being rays of light,
illuminating a bright space,
and on which communities are built.

 

Cities are clustered together throughout the painting,
built upon and connected by this light,
a positive energy and inspiration.

 

How do you connect to the communities in your life?
What lights you up,
and
what can you build with it?
