Har HaShem is pleased to put on another No Shushing Shabbat service on June 19, 2015 at 6:00 pm. Everyone is welcome and can feel comfortable to be who they are and to do whatever feels right to them in terms of moving around or talking. The only rule is “no shushing!” This service was created so that everyone can enjoy Shabbat together in a meaningful way. People with disabilities, those who have mental health challenges, and their friends and families are invited to the service. There will be sensory toys, a sign language interpreter, and gluten-free foods at the oneg.
Nevei Kodesh, a warm and welcoming Jewish Renewal Community invites you to join us virtually for prayer, study and connection!
“It Started With Words” – Holocaust Survivors Give Stunning Testimonies To Mark Holocaust Remembrance Day
Before local anti-Jewish laws were enacted, before neighborhood shops and synagogues were destroyed, and before Jews were forced into ghettos, cattle cars, and camps, words were used to stoke the fires of hate. #ItStartedWithWords is a digital, Holocaust education campaign posting weekly videos of survivors from around the world reflecting on those moments that led up to the Holocaust – a period of time when they could not have predicted the ease with which their long-time neighbors, teachers, classmates, and colleagues would turn on them, transitioning from words of hate to acts of violence.
