Rabbi Suzy leads a laid-back, egalitarian minyan with musician Gavri-Tov Yares. This service combines many of the popular melodies from 6th in the City and Good Soul Shabbats while incorporating new tunes with an international flair.
From sports to pop culture, geography to politics, we’ll test your knowledge of it all outdoors in the heart of NOMA at Wunder Garten. Coming solo? Sit at the “Mix & Match” table to meet new people and share your brainpower.
Jews don’t believe in Heaven or Hell? You can’t be buried in a Jewish cemetery if you’re tattooed? The challah (bread) on the Shabbat table is embarrassed?
Shining a beacon of truth, Rabbi Scott steps in to uncover the truth behind all of the lies your Hebrew School teacher may have told you.
Session 2: History of the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict
Explore the birth of both Jewish and Palestinian national aspirations and their divergent experiences of Israel’s founding: the War of Independence and the Nakba (“catastrophe” in Arabic) , respectively. Discuss the ways historical narratives live on today, how they shape the negotiating table, and whether mutual recognition of these narratives might help pave a path forward. This class will be taught by Rabbi Shira and Obada Shtaya of OneVoice International.
Musicians Aaron Shneyer and Michal Bilick offer soulful acoustic music, deep spirituality, and a thoughtful service to DC. After services, fill our sanctuary with the spirited sound of new tunes and old favorites.
