Description Celebrate Inter-Faith, Inter-Cultural Families!

Celebrate one of the world’s newest Torah scrolls (woman-crafted)

Another great Chai Shabbat at 10am with our spiritual leaders and singers and Ketzev Kehilla (our drum circle). BUT THAT’S NOT ALL.

This Shabbat we are doing two big extras:

1) HONORING INTER-FAITH, INTER-CULTURAL FAMILIES: This weekend has been designated nationally as a time to welcome and honor interfaith families in Jewish community. What a great change over 50 years ago when families of combined backgrounds were shunned in our communities. Bring your whole interfaith intercultural family to the service and get a special aliyah and blessing.

2) NEWEST TORAH: We are greeting the presence of one of the world’s newest Torah scrolls and one of a handful crafted by a woman scribe. It is on a one-month loan to Kehilla from the Contemporary Jewish Museum where, over two years, Julie Seltzer calligraphed the Torah while museum visitors watched. Come see it up close.

Child care provided.

A great Kiddush will be provided.
