NEW Two-part Class @ CNS: The Structure of the Siddur and Shabbat Morning Services

The Structure of the Siddur (Prayerbook) 
and Shabbat Morning Services 
with Rabbi Shalom Bochner, CNS Director of LifeLong Learning

A two-part class on Tuesday 1/5 and 1/12 
7:30 - 9:00pm
Congregation Netivot Shalom

How did the Prayerbook come to be?  It's called The Siddur, the "Ordered Book", but what is the order and why? What are the main parts, divisions, themes, and intentions of the prayer services?  This is a two part class that will answer these questions about the structure of the siddur and the flow of Services on Shabbat Morning.  If you have your own copy of the Siddur, please bring it.  Copies will also be available during the class.

No registration is required, this is a free class. Donations to Adult Ed at Netivot Shalom gladly accepted!

To Kneel [a #Poem]

To Kneel 

(c) Rabbi Menachem Creditorfor Landingham & Kaepernick, our angels in the wings
Sometimes, it isn't about nuance.
Sometimes it just comes down to facing the storm,
calling God out,
standing at the center of a whirlwind
holding your ground.

No cathedral is immune to agony,
no soul impervious to life itself no nation purely noble.
If it were any other way,
there would be no need for cathedrals
in the first place.

Kneel,  stand,  sit,  rise up.

To kneel is
to submit  to lower oneself  to step down  to pause.
To kneel is to call attention  to touch the Earth's face to listen to those  whose blood saturates  the very roots of our story.
To kneel is to step aside  to step outside  to invite others to come closer  to remember.
To kneel is not to stand not to stand not to stand idly by.
Speak your truth,
God damn it.

That's what God wants most of all.
