This Friday Night: "Going Out, Coming Out!"
This Friday night at 7pm we're having some special services: "Going Out, Coming Out."  In honor of Coming Out Day the Young Adults Committee is hosting Shabbat evening services and dinner celebrating our LGBT community and fantastic allies!
 
The parsha, Lech Lecha, tells of Abram's (Abraham) story of transformation, and Sarai (Sarah) passing as something she is not. All are welcome to join us and declare their true selves in celebration. Rabbi Mike Rothbaum and Rabbi Pam Frydman will lead services.

 

It brings us such great joy to host events and dinners for you! 
Unfortunately, our pocketbook doesn't like it as much
If you can 
just $10 to the Young Adult Committee your help would allow us to continue to buy food for Shabbat, snacks for game days, and your co-chairs lots of relief. 
It's simple -  click here - go to "Donate" and designate the funds for Young Adults!

 

And, of course, dinner and fun is open to all, no matter what your financial situation is. :)

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.
