This Friday night is our second “Welcome Shabbat” of the summer. Please join us and bring friends to our Sabbath service that promises to warm your heart and fill you with a sense of hope during this time of tension and violence in the Middle East as we welcome a group of teens from Israel and the Palestinian territories. These teens will grace us with their stories after having spent the week at an international peace camp called “Kids-4-Peace”.
This past Saturday, I had the privilege of joining this amazing group of teens at Camp Allen as the rabbi for the day. I was truly encouraged as these brave souls committed themselves to learning from each other despite the ongoing context of hatred and violence that have become so central to their daily lives.
Bring friends to services to spread a message of hope, and learn about this groundbreaking camp and how it strives to build bridges of peace by planting seeds of trust and understanding in the next generation of leadership.
