Congregation P'nai Tikvah9700 Hillpointe Rd. | Services 1st & 3rd Fridays of each month @7:30pm
“Whatever the faiths you have known or the flags of your heritage, you are welcome here. Whatever the circumstances of your life and whomever you love, you are welcome here.
Whether you ran in here today on little feet, or ambled, or strolled, or rolled in, you are welcome here.
Whether you lean to the right or to the left, or like it somewhere in the middle; whether you are a believer or a questioner, or a questioning believer, you are welcome to this makom shalom, this place of peace, joy, and hope, Congregation P’nai Tikvah…”
(Based on a greeting used by Rev. Kevin Tarsa, shared by Rabbi Chava Bahle, and further refined by Rabbi Yocheved Mintz)

Reb Jamie’s Candlelighting/Welcoming Shabbat
Garden of Oneness
To move away from darkness,
To experience your light
In the faces of others
Even as we communicate on a screen.
We are social beingsDesigned for relationship.
Help us to cultivate our friendships
In this new and foreign virtual garden;
The touch of a hand replaced
With a key stroke.
Remind us, Adonai, of our oneness.
We each serve a purpose, but we’re part
Of the whole.
To make safe choices,
Decipher decisions with wisdom
And show loving-kindness to others.
“The arc of the moral universe is long
But it bends towards justice.” (MLK)
