Announcing our 2014 CNS Nominating Committee!!


The Board of Director's is proud to announce the 2014 CNS Nominating Committee! 

The members of the committee are:

Art Braufman
Mehgan Starkey
Josh Kirsh
Maia Singer
Marshall Platt
Hilary Kilimnik
Larry Hanover

Please make a point of saying hello to the committee! What's the nominating committee, you ask? The nominating committee works to find people who are ready to deepen their involvement with the community and step into some of the formal leadership roles that help keep our community running and thriving. The committee is charged with proposing a slate of candidates for all open leadership positions.  The slate will then be voted on at our annual meeting in November.

You can email the Nominating Committee at

Stepping into a leadership position is a great way to get more engaged with the community, and can be deeply rewarding. There are positions for a variety of skill sets.  We also welcome questions from people who would like more information, or who are contemplating throwing their hat in the ring but are not yet sure.  The slate of open positions will be published shortly.

We look forward to hearing from you!
The Board of Directors of Congregation Netivot Shalom

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.
