What is  it like being in Israel during the Hamas-Israel war? A panel of Netivot Shalom members who were in Israel this summer share their experiences, impressions, personal reactions and the reactions of Israelis to the Gaza war.   Some members were there solo, some as families.  Participants are pre-teen, teen, adults:  Revital, Ophir and Adee Gilad, Daniel Krupitski,  Efrat Simhi-Aloni, Elad Ziv.  Moderated by Debby Graudenz.

This program is the first of several V'zot Yisrael programs planned for the coming year that feature  Netivot Shalom members talking about a variety of experiences in Israel.  Please note that this is not a political discussion.   Come hear fellow CNS members share their experiences.

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.
