Shabbat Services: Seeking Wholeness Amidst the Violence

  • First Baptist Church, 633 Centre Street Jamaica Plain, Boston (map)

Hosted by Rabbis Ari Lev Fornari and Joseph Berman

We are currently in the Jewish month of Av. The month of Av is sometimes called "Menachem Av" - meaning Av of comfort. A month which recognizes the brokenness in our world and in our hearts.

Who does not need comfort in these times of horrifying violence in Gaza? The comfort of a community committed to safety and justice for Palestinians and Israelis. The comfort of a community that does not dehumanize Palestinians or Israelis and seeks to hold the State of Israel accountable for its actions. The comfort of a community that gathers seeking wholeness and a taste of a just and peaceful world.

Join us for a Shabbat of wholeness and peace, and to renew ourselves for another week of compassionate organizing. People of all ages and spiritual orientations encouraged to attend.
