A leap of faith
Last night we went to an event to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the New Shul. It is quite impressive that 2 women, who worked together in the theater, decided to create a new synagogue. They had no money, no rabbi and no space. What they did was take a leap of faith.
I am a huge believer in the leap of faith. You feel it in your gut and just jump in with 2 feet. That is what the 2 founders did here. That is what the 2 guys did with the Highline too. Entrepreneurs generally start their companies with the same head. If they knew what they were getting themselves into they probably would have never done it.
The co-founder spoke about their leap of faith in her speech. It was really wonderful as she talked about what they didn't have or couldn't do was the absolute success to the synagogue.
Congratulations to the New Shul and the founders who really created something out of nothing. That alone is worth a standing ovation.
