This coming Sunday at CNS: "Jewish Leadership & Responsibility"

Pre-minyan learning session from 9 - 9:30 AM with Rabbi Creditor: Rambam's Hilchot Tefillah/Laws of Prayer.  Rambam (Maimonides) wrote "Laws of Jewish Prayer", a volume of his comprehensive Mishnah Torah so communities could study Jewish tradition together.  This preparation for the Minyan, will be based on the original text in the Hebrew with English translation.

Minyan at 9:30 followed by breakfast thanks to Barbara Wezelman and at 10:30 AM we will move to the Sanctuary (because people will be preparing the Social Hall for the Pre-Chanukah Fair) and

Rabbi Menachem Creditor will discuss "Jewish Leadership & Responsibility". This is the second talk in the five-part series "Exploring the Concept of a Jewish Community".  Jewish leaders, professional and volunteer, care very deeply about their communities.  But how many of us have experienced a Jewish Leadership training program?  Based on one such program he created and led in Boston ("J-Lead"), Rabbi Creditor will present a basic overview of Jewish Leadership Core Competencies, as well as suggest reading material for further developing leadership skills.

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.
