Preschool Social Justice & Youth Community Visioning!

And the Youth Shall See Visions.... Netivot Shalom!
For our Fall Tzedakah Project, Netivot Shalom Preschool is partnering 
with the Women's Daytime Drop-in Center (WDDC) on Acton Street here in Berkeley. 

This program empowers women and children to move from the streets to a home by providing ongoing and intensive counseling, case management services, daily support groups, a comprehensive children's program, a variety of referral services, and a transitional housing program for four single parent families.
We have planned this project to coincide with Vayera, the birth of Issac, which we will read on November 3. This week and next we will be collecting diapers, Pullups, pacifiers, bottles, wipes, formula and baby food from our preschool families and the Netivot Shalom Community. Securing these basic necessities for their children is but one step in helping these mothers move forward.


Your donations can be dropped off in the large decorated box in the foyer.

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.
