Praising the Eternal, Thanksgiving Chairs Message


Across the US, as we pause for this moment of praise, thanks and hope - all of us at Jubilee wish to thank-you for working with us to build a world where we all have enough. See below a note of Thanksgiving from Jubilee's new Co-Chairs Rabbi Matthew Cutler and Sobia Ijaz.

Thank-you for you,

Eric LeCompte

A message from Co-Chairs Sobia Ijaz and Rabbi Matthew Cutler:

"I give thanks before You, living and eternal Sovereign, for You have returned within me my soul with compassion; abundant is Your faithfulness”
- Modeh Ani

"In the name of Allah,
the Gracious, the Merciful.
All praise belongs to Allah, Lord of all the worlds,
The Gracious, the Merciful,
Master of the Day of Judgment."

- (1:1-4) Qur'an

"My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord,
my spirit rejoices in God my Savior...
for he has remembered his promise of mercy, the promise he made to our fathers, to Abraham and his children forever."
- The Magnificat (Mary's Prayer)

Friends -

Amidst times of suffering and loss, we praise the Eternal One, celebrate the harvest and follow the promise. We are grateful to join you and the many builders of a Jubilee world where we all reap the promised harvest, demanded by the Eternal One.

We give thanks that many of our Jubilee USA Network efforts to protect our planet, lives and livelihoods succeeded in 2022. Thanks to our partners, members and donors who continue to work until the promise is fulfilled. We appreciate our wonderful Jubilee team, board and leadership community that drive our efforts on pandemic response, poverty, inequality and climate.

On behalf of all of us at Jubilee, we give thanks for you and wish you and your loved ones a blessed and happy Thanksgiving.

In hope,

Rabbi Matthew Cutler
