Cantor Levine’s 10th Anniversary Celebrations at Brith Shalom

Shalom all,

Cantor Levine is a blessing in our Brith Shalom community. When he arrived 10 years ago, we knew that our community would be blessed with an expert Jewish educator. Since then, the blessings have multiplied exponentially. We now also know about his true mastery of professional skills, the intensity of his passion, and the depth of his commitment. As a community, we have presented Cantor Levine with many new challenges over the years. He has graciously accepted each challenge and risen to greet them all with great enthusiasm and diligence.

Alternative Davening Experiences

Shalom all,

In the weeks and months to come, you will have the opportunity to experience alternative davening experiences. As we continue to strengthen our traditional services, we are also experimenting with more progressive modes of prayer. If these experiments in davening work, we’ll consider continuing them as alternative options to our traditional davening. We are not attempting to replace our traditional davening. Rather, we are striving to offer davening opportunities to those who are less traditionally oriented.

Happy GivingThanks

Shalom all,

As we approach Thanksgiving, we are called to cultivate our gratitude. Yes, there is brokenness in the world in need of repair. Yes, we all have opportunities for growth and areas of concern.

So, how do we cultivate gratitude in a landscape of brokenness, lack, and concern? Start from the bottom up with 3 simple steps.

Step 1: Appreciate life.

Words Matter

Words Matter

A Poem in Response to the Tragedy in Pittsburgh

Rabbi Ranon Teller

 

Words have power to inflame. Words have power to comfort.

 

Words matter.

 

As survivors and mourners search for meaning, some are finding meaning in the power of words.

 

Words matter.

 

We console each other with words. We sing our songs to You, Adonai.
