Transliterated Siddur
Announcing a new Shabbat Morning Transliterated Siddur!

Thanks to many, many Netivot Shalom members, a new tool for accessing Hebrew davening has been born! Special mention to Liza Kramer, an Amitim for Grownups alumna, for championing most recently, and spurring the publication of Siddur Tov leHodot: A Shabbat Morning Transliterated Siddur, we'll have 100 on our shul's shelves by next week! Copies will also be available for purchase in the shul office during regular hours beginning next week.

Dear Chevreh,
Over 70 members of Netivot Shalom led the magical Chagim we've shared these last few weeks! 
Drashot, Davening, Shofar-blowing, Malachim-greeters, Youth Services, logistics, Torah Reading, Yom Kippur Appeals, Kiddushim -  what an amazing chagim we have experienced, textured by our dynamic, participatory community! 


Todah Rabah to:
  • Claire Sherman, for organizing all of the Daveners for Rosh haShannah and Yom Kippur!
  • Robin Braverman, for organizing all of the Torah/Haftorah Readers for Rosh haShannah and Yom Kippur!
  • Marcia Brooks and Shari Rifas, for organizing kiddushim and break-the-fast!
  • Eugene Berg and the ad-hoc House Committee, for moving and arranging and lifting and organizing our physical space!
  • Joan Bradus and a small army of Angels/Malachim, for greeting the large crowd that filled our holy home all through the chagim!
  • Milt Greenstein, Noah Ginsburg, Burt Dorman, Phyllis Press and Gabor Szesci for constructing (and deconstructing!) our beautiful Sukkah!
  • Rachel Schorr and Lisa Gershony, for supporting every effort behind the scenes!
  • Rabbi Shalom Bochner, for coordinating and leading our childcare & Youth/Family Services, with a team of wonderful professionals and volunteers!
There are very few communities in the world that dance, sing,
daven, and share with the consistency and intense passion we've created as a community. May this energize us to live up to some of the commitments we were inspired to make through the chagim!

Kol Tuv,
Rabbi Creditor

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.
