Yom HaZikaron and Yom HaAtzmaut
 
Because Yom HaZikaron (Israeli Memorial Day) and Yom HaAtzmaut (Israeli Independence Day) fall back-to-back on the Hebrew calendar, Independence Day festivities begin almost immediately after the mourning and solemnities of Memorial Day end. This year, Yom HaZikaron begins at sundown on May 7 and Yom HaAtzmaut begins at sundown on May 8. While Kol Shalom does not plan official events for these days, to learn more about these important days for Israel, Click Here.

Coming on May 22 – Class Rumi

 Rabbi Paul will also host a class on May 22 from 7:00-9:00pm to discuss Rumi, and highly recommends the recently reissued “The Essential Rumi” translated by Coleman Barks.

 
I am a Jew. Do I have to believe in G-d?
May 23 and 30, 2019. Thursdays from 7-9 p.m.
It is more common than we want to admit. “I am a Jew but I am not sure I believe in G-d.” The problem is, what exactly is this “G-d” we are questioning? Is it a “he” with a long flowing beard reaching out to touch Adam on the Sistine Chapel or is it the empty space in between the wings of the Cherubim over the Ark of the Covenant? Is G-d a vengeful entity hiding in the clouds that checks to see if we are naughty or nice, or is G-d a universal scientific constant or the sum of all animate and inanimate relationships? And quite frankly, does and level of Judaism, traditional or otherwise, support any of these ideas? Exactly “who” is it we are blessing when we say “Baruch ata-Blessed are You?” If any of these questions resonate, this class on theology, Jewish-style, is for you.
