Judaism is an amazing spiritual path, with nuance and texture that requires guidance. Rabbi Menachem Creditor of Congregation Netivot Shalom in Berkeley, has supported many people exploring their ways into Judaism. This year-long class will connect individual journeyers together and also introduce participants to a group of warm teaching assistants, each of whom has chosen Judaism as well. The class will deal with questions of Holidays, Bible, Philosophy, Prayer, Practice, Jewish Denominations, Law, Tradition, and Spirituality. No previous Jewish background is necessary. Welcome!

Space is limited. Please contact Rachel at office@netivotshalom.org for more info and to register!

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.
