Shorashim Friday Night Family Service and Dinner this week! please RSVP

Inline image 1
You are all cordially invited for Shabbat dinner Friday, October 26th.  These Shabbat dinners are wonderful opportunities to gather together as a community to daven/pray, eat and most importantly, schmooze!  The evening includes a short Kabbalat Shabbat service at 6pm followed by dinner at 6:30pm.  After our meal Rabbi Shalom will lead an interactive text dialogue and exploration about food based on Hazon's Home For Dinner curriculum.  

Speaking of food, Serena and Lara will do the shopping and much of the cooking but we still need your help!  It would be amazing if we could have 3-4 parents to help cook from 4-6 that Friday afternoon, October 26.  If you can't make it until 5:30-6, great, you can help set up!  Our hope is that everyone, kids too, will pitch in to help clean up but if you can commit to leading the clean up effort that would be a big help.

If you plan to attend or help with any aspect of our meal, please RSVP to Serena Heaslip at .  We are asking for a donation of $10 per adult and $5 dollar per child to help cover our food costs. 

We hope you can join us!

Kol Tuv/ Best Wishes,
Lara, Serena and Rabbi Shalom

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.
