Upcoming Events

  • Sat24
    Shabbat Service led by Rabbi Joseph Berman
    March 24, 9:30 am - 11:30 am
    Unitarian Universalist Church of Arlington

    The Shabbat before Pesach is known as Shabbat HaGadol, the Great Sabbath, where we get ready for the coming holiday. Join us for songful and soulful davening led by Rabbi Joseph Berman, intended as preparation for the journey out of mitzrayim – the narrow place and towards freedom. The Torah discussion will focus on the inner challenges of maintaining our fire for the pursuit of justice and wholeness. In the face of so much suffering and the constant barrage of bad news and political setbacks, how do we keep from despair, disillusionment, and burnout? What can support us in the struggle and keep us moving forward? For many of us (and for many of us this Shabbat) part of the answer is praying with our feet by taking to the streets, but what else is needed to feed our souls? Join us as we prepare for Passover, the time of liberation.

    Please bring a dairy vegetarian dish. We’ll be in the Chapel.

    Yom Ha'Shoah: Northern Virginia's 2018 Holocaust Commemoration
    April 8, 4:30 pm - 8:30 pm
    Jewish Community Center of Northern Virginia

    Each year we join together as a Northern Virginia community to remember the Holocaust. The 2018 Yom Ha’Shoah Commemoration will take place at the JCC Northern Virginia. This year’s commemoration focuses on “Hate Speech and the Holocaust,” with lessons that are ever more relevant to the actions we take today. A Teen Program will run from 4:30 PM to 6:30 PM. Teens will confront hate speech from the Holocaust and today, and discuss how our responses make a difference. An art exhibit with the focus on “Unto every person there is a name” runs from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM. From 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM, there will be a memorial service honoring the survivors, victims and heroes of the Holocaust, with readings from Holocaust survivors and survivors of hate speech.
