Dear Netivot Shalom Community,


We are delighted to share that the Jewish Federation and Jewish Community Foundation of the East Bay has awarded us financial aid support in the amount of $1,560.00 for the purpose of preschool scholarships for the 2013-2014 school year and will be applied directly to the Joe Meresman Scholarship Fund!


Thank you also to everybody who participated in the annual honey fundraiser this fall. Our Parent Association raised close to $400.00 through this fundraiser which will also support scholarships in the preschool!



The preschool has a fundraising goal of $20,000.00 to raise before June 1, 2014 in order to continue the generous scholarship support we currently offer families. We encourage you to consider how you might be able to financially support our preschool this year, and invite you to consider making a gift online! (Click here!)

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.
