Sharing the Story of Liberation
For thousands of years, our people have been telling the story of our liberation from Egypt. The story awakens us to value our freedom and to recognize that so many in the world are yet to be free. We retell the story over and over again because we have hope that it will elevate our passion to create a more just world in partnership with each other, across lines of difference, and with God.
In the month of January, we will learn the Jewish story of liberation as we enter into the Book of Exodus. We will march together on MLK Jr. Weekend. We will welcome dynamic clergy and scholars from other faith traditions to share their understanding of liberation and the call to justice. Let the story of liberation stir our desire as individuals and as a congregation towards the ancient call, “justice, justice we shall pursue.” We invite the Jewish community and the interfaith community to join us for dinner and Shabbat Evening Services.
