New Adult Class: "Deepening Your Jewish Experience"

"Deepening Your Jewish Experience: 
Shabbat, Food, and Prayer"
with Rabbi Menachem Creditor
Congregation Netivot Shalom
Wednesdays, April 17 - May 1 -- 7:30 pm
at Congregation Netivot Shalom - sponsored by Lehrhaus Judaica

($20 for nonmembers; free to Netivot Shalom members.)

Do you bless your food with gratitude that a stooped worker picked it for you? Do you breathe in the rest of the Sabbath with ecstatic peace? Or, do you just wish you could? Join this conversation and explore how you can deepen your personal Jewish practice. We will explore three key areas: Shabbat, food, and prayer. Come exactly as you are and honestly determine what you would like MORE of in your life. Each person will be on their own journey but will share their questions and challenges.

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.
