Join us as we celebrate TWO milestones at Shir Tikvah!
This coming spring is a historic moment for Shir Tikvah and we hope you will join us in celebration and support.
On May 25 and 26, 2018 the community will come together to celebrate Rabbi Latz's 18 years in the rabbinate and Shir Tikvah's 30th anniversary as a congregation! For three decades, Shir Tikvah has shared countless powerful, intimate, soulful moments: watching the B’nei Mitzvah students grow up; championing the right for everyone to be married; embracing you as you wept in grief and buried your loved ones; learning the Torah of compassion, humility, and justice; leading the way in the broader community to build bridges and love all our neighbors: Christians, Muslims, Unitarians, Immigrants, and fellow Jews. Rabbi Latz has embraced every one of those values and then some over the past decade.
We believe this momentous occasion is worthy of a grand Shabbaton, and we are excited to announce that two icons in the Jewish world will be joining us for the weekend:
Rabbi Menachem Creditor, is the rabbi of Congregation Netivot Shalom, in Berkeley, CA. He is also a blogger for the Times of Israel and a contributor to the Huffington Post.
Neshama Carlebach, a leading superstar in Jewish entertainment, has sung on Broadway, sold more than one million records, and was a six-time entrant in the 2011 Grammy Awards.
