Feb 26th at 1pm: A Learning Celebration in honor of the publication of "Paths of Torah!"

Save the Date! 
A Learning Celebration in honor of the publication of "Paths of Torah!"
Sunday, Feb 26th at 1pm
Congregation Netivot Shalom


After 3 years of sacred work by over 60 members of Congregation Netivot Shalom, the book "Paths of Torah" was published this month! "Paths of Torah", a professionally edited collection of shul members' Divrei Torah over twenty years. The book reflects the diversity of one Jewish community's ongoing relationship with Torah. It is an unfinished record of an ongoing, cross-generational dream. In the pages of our new treasure, readers will find heirlooms, stories, struggles and dreams, and most important, an invitation to continue the dialogue with Torah.  At this celebration, Torah learning will be facilitated by some contributors to the book, coffee, light refreshments, and childcare will be provided. 

Purchase your copy of "Paths of Torah" at the event, at Netivot Shalom during office hours, 
at Afikomen Judaica, or through EKS online at!

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.
