Learn about: Theology, Holidays, Lifecycles, Prayer, Law, Torah, and more! Make new friends in a welcoming, inclusive setting, participate in Shabbat observance and holiday celebrations, cook and eat traditional Jewish food on Shabbat potlucks, take part in a community service project, and become familiar with Jewish practice. Knowledge of Hebrew is unnecessary. 

On May 2, 2015, participants will assume responsibility for leading one aspect of a Shabbat service as part of the group's Adult Bat/Bar Mitzvah celebration!

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.
