Shabbat Shuvah on the 20th Anniversary of 9/11: Four NoVa Congregations Join Kol Ami in Commemoration

September 11, 2021    
10:00 am - 12:00 pm

This year, the Sabbath of Return between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur falls on the 20th anniversary of 9/11.  Join us for Shabbat morning services on Zoom, and a special program and discussion led by Rabbi Bruce Aft, Rabbi Gilah, David Siegel, and others as we bring  together personal memories of what happened 20 years ago with reflections on its long aftermath and the current situation.  How do we remember the cataclysmic attack?  How do our children think of it?  How do we disentangle the harm done to us from the harm and unintended consequences of our own actions in response?  Kol Ami is delighted to welcome members from four Northern Virginia congregations for the morning service and/or discussion:  Fauquier Jewish Congregation in Warrenton, Beth Shalom Temple in Fredericksburg, Congregation Beth Emeth in Herndon, and Shaare Shalom in Leesburg.  Everyone is invited to stay on afterwards for a Zoom lunch and to continue the conversation.
