Biblical Ideas of Justice. What is justice? How do we create a just society? What morality animates the later books of the Bible? In this three part course, we will examine various stories in the Prophets and the Writings that explore the Divine mandate we have to build a better world.


Participants are asked to register with Daniel in the Netivot Shalom office at




an after-Birkat HaMazon text-based conversation with CNS Rabbinic Intern Josh Buchin

Shabbat, July 12 (approx. 1pm)


What responsibilities do we have for those in our community? How far do those responsibilities extend? How should those obligations extend in our lives? From the Torah onwards, Jews have been instructed to create sacred communities of inclusivity, compassion, and concern for those in our midst. Come and explore Biblical & Rabbinic texts that address the personal obligation to build with and for others.

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.
