Dear Friends,

Being together as a community is always precious. And after this week, gevalt.

 

Davening begins at 7pm tonight. Please come. Come in your jeans. Come in your pajamas. Come if you know the words by heart. Come if you don't know any Hebrew. Just being together is important, and prayer can hold us. This week has been a tough one, and isn't quite over yet. Boston, the Senate, Campus, Watertown. That's quite a list of hurts for us all to endure. 

 

So come tonight for some comfort and community. Sing a bit, cry a bit, pray a bit. Just being together will be more than enough.

 

Jewish tradition teaches that Shabbat is a taste of the World to Come. I have no idea what that really means. All I know is that a

 taste of the World to Come will be much, much sweeter if we taste it together.

 

Looking forward to sharing Shabbat,

Rabbi Creditor

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.
