Kol Ami — The Northern Virginia Reconstructionist Community

Kabbalat Shabbat and Yom HaShoah Observance led by Richard Ruth

May 3, 2019, 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Unitarian Universalist Church of Arlington

Arlington, VA 22204

On Shabbat, our tradition tells us, the world is perfect.  It is hard to reconcile that with Yom ha-Shoah, when we commemorate the Holocaust.  But maybe we can think about our May 3 Kabbalat Shabbat time together as a time when the bond between our ancestors and us, their world and our world, will get re-woven, and we can get a glimpse of the unbroken Jewish continuity we live out, each in our own way, and together as a community.  This will be a child- and family-friendly service; and please feel free to invite your friends, Jewish and non-Jewish.  Richard Ruth will be leading, and promises to keep the service to an hour.  He also promises that the Shabbat Queen will be bringing a tangible present to everyone who attends.
