Kol Ami — The Northern Virginia Reconstructionist Community

Shabbat Service led by Richard Ruth

Unitarian Universalist Church of Arlington

Arlington, VA 22204

Summer will be at its height, and, in the Jewish cycle of the year, it will be a powerful time – in the month of Av, called the time when our joy reduces (but is never eliminated), and a few days before Tisha b’Av, when we mourn the destruction of our ancient temples.  We’ll contemplate how to be joyful even when our joy decreases; study parsha Chukat, when Miriam dies, Aaron dies, Moses hits the rock instead of speaking to it as God asked him to, but we’re joyful and hopeful anyway; sing and pray, and enjoy being together.

Richard Ruth will be bringing his famous potato salad for the oneg; hope you’ll also bring something wonderful, beginning with your summery self.  We’ll be in the Chapel.
