Celebrate Gala 5774 with Netivot Shalom!

25 years ago, a Conservative synagogue was envisioned around a kitchen table in Berkeley. From its very beginnings, this new shul was vibrant and participatory, and it steadily grew into the thriving sacred community we cherish today. 


Join us in celebrating 25th anniversary of the founding of Congregation Netivot Shalom at our Annual Gala, Sunday, June 15 at 6pm at our home on University Avenue. We willl also be honoring the many contributions of Milt and Marge Greenstein to Netivot.


Enjoy fine food and conversation, stories and song. Formal invitations will be mailed shortly.




Placing an ad in the Tribute Journal is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate this landmark anniversary and thank our honorees, while providing essential support for the great work happening at Netivot Shalom every single day.
Please consider placing the largest, most heartfelt sponsorship you can.

Gala Sponsorships and Tribute Journal submissions must be received by May 23, 2014.  Please don't delay!  Send your form in today!

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.
