Our Problem To Solve - Gathering to End Gun Violence in Our Community

Netivot Shalom is co-sponsoring this event along with other local congregations of various faiths to focus on Ending Gun Violence in Our Community.  

Speakers will include Rabbi Creditor and Pastor Michael McBride of The Way Christian Center (our neighbors across the street), State Assembly member Nancy Skinner, as well as Berkeley City Council members Laurie Capitelli and Darryl Moore.  

This is not just a national issue - Monday afternoon a 31 year old man was shot while bicycle riding in Richmond.  

Please join us to discuss how we can gather the strength of our community to confront this problem.

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.
