from the Alameda County Community Food Bank: Volunteers Needed on Sunday, March 3



Dear Friend of the Food Bank,


Happy February!  As you may know, the last several months have been extremely busy at the Food Bank and in this ongoing time of need for so many of us in our community, we continue to be busy sorting and packaging  food items.  Often we receive inquiries about Sunday volunteer opportunities to help with this work and so we ask that you please pass on the following information to the members of your congregation:


·         On Sunday, March 3, we will be open for a morning shift and afternoon shift.  (Shifts will begin promptly at 9:00am and 1:00pm.)


Please direct interested congregants to register individually at  Sunday (March 3) Volunteering  making sure to put the name of your congregation in the field, "Company/Organization."  We encourage folks to register as soon as possible since weekend volunteer opportunities generally fill quickly.


We hope to see you and others from your congregation in March.


Your support of Alameda County Community Food Bank is greatly appreciated.

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.
