A hundred homing pigeons were released today at the Synagogue. Each was held in turn by a child in our Religious School, a parent, or a grandparent, and sent with prayer and blessing across the Arkansas River. That's a hundred homing pigeons for a hundred years of congregational life in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The ritual expresses the hope that we will be free of care as the new year begins. Happy birthday, B'nai Emunah, and thanks the over hundred people at the front door of the Synagogue!
