Can I recommend unpinning a post when a new event is happening? It makes it hard to find the current event. Thanks.
Looking forward to the Simchat Torah-Mobile!

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 Nazi 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.

Soothe Your Soul

Cantor Arik Luck shares a message from the Emanu-El clergy team.

Tonight in the darkness, the lights of our beloved Temple Emanu-El in San Francisco will light up the night sky as we join together in protest, resilience and hope.

[01/07/21]   Shining the light of freedom — a statement from our clergy:

Dear Emanu-El Community,

We, as Congregation Emanu-El, are kindling the lights of the synagogue tonight, letting the light of freedom that has so blessed us in this country shine brightly from our dome during this time when our precious freedom is under threat.

We, a people who know the danger of the mob, condemn the violent political acts shamefully incited in Washington D.C. today by a stream of lies and dangerous rhetoric, and the attempt by some of our fellow citizens to impose their will upon the rest of us. Those who participated in and stood by this violence have soiled the fabric of our democracy.

This democracy is precious and must be protected and respected. We, who came to these shores in search of liberty, know that the light of freedom that shines from our capital is a light unto the nations — challenging oppression and tyranny across the world. Those rioting in the capital are trying to douse that light. Our tradition implores us to keep it kindled.

We join the pluralistic and diverse majority of our fellow Americans by adding our prayers for peace, but also demanding respect for our democracy. We stand with law enforcement and government officials who are risking their lives to oppose this un-American behavior.

May the lamp that is America shine brightly and push back this darkness. We are grateful to add our light to that shining beacon.

Blessing for a New Year

"And yet as we get ready to be vaccinated and embrace that which we have so missed, may we consider not just rejoicing but striving to live with a renewed awareness of the preciousness of what we have and what we share with other human beings-seeing the holy in each other, being more gracious and seeking shlemut - peace and a sense of wholeness.

How to Find Proven Solutions to Your Biggest Challenges Through New Leadership Networks

More than a year ago, Rabbi Sarah Joselow Parris met with Andy Harkavy, director of congregational engagement in Charlotte, N.C. at a conference for Professional and Engagement Professionals of Reform Judaism (PEP-RJ). Every two weeks, the two of them meet over Zoom. Why? What do they have in common?

Great read about the Union for Reform Judaism Small Groups Network!

urj.org We know that change is hard, and it’s impossible to do alone. Being in relationships with other leaders who find themselves at the same liminal moment of congregational change allows for brave action and necessary risk-taking.
