I'll be giving a 1-hr. live, interactive Judaica art talk with slides on Wed, Oct. 7 at 6 pm PDT. Please join me and tell your friends. Get your free tickets here:
I am so grateful for these services in the midst of the pandemic, corrupt law enforcement and orange skies!
Announcing a call for 3D art that harnesses the insights of two German speaking Jewish philosophers, Hannah Arendt and Vilem Flusser, and that hopes, in some small way, to push back against the conditions that allow repressive governments to emerge. Both Arendt and Flusser fled N**i rule in Europe during those dark times.

The inception of this call was back in 2018, in response to the Pittsburgh synagogue shootings.

If you are an artist, or you know of an artist who might be interested, please spread the word, and apply! And then stay tuned for our November opening on Zoom.

Thank you, Ken Winnick from Seattle.

Dear Emanu-El Community,

We pray for the peace of Jerusalem, for the protection of our beloved State of Israel and for the safety and security of all peoples of the region.

We call upon the political leadership of Israelis and Palestinians to seek ways to solve conflict not through violence but through engagement and negotiation, seeing the holy in each other as they seek peace and pursue it.

We unequivocally support the right of Israel to defend its citizens. Our hearts go out to Israeli families, many of whom sit now in bomb shelters, fearing for their safety. While we condemn Jewish extremism and anti-Arab racism, absolutely nothing excuses the launching of rockets on a civilian population.

Images of Jews marching and shouting racist slogans and attacking Arabs are deeply disturbing. We reaffirm our commitment to religious pluralism and democracy in Israel, and to a political solution that provides for peace and security for Israelis and Palestinians.

In Psalm 122 we find the words:

שַׁ֭אֲלוּ שְׁל֣וֹם יְרוּשָׁלִָ֑ם יִ֝שְׁלָ֗יוּ אֹהֲבָֽיִךְ׃
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem; May those who love you be at peace.

To hear Cantor Attie sing this Song for Peace, visit http://emanuelsf.org/statement0512.

Shalom,
Congregation Emanu-El Clergy
