This coming spring is a historic moment for Shir Tikvah and we hope you will join us in celebration and support.
For the last decade, Rabbi Latz has shared countless powerful, intimate, soulful moments with us: Studying with B’nei Mitzvah students and those converting to Judaism; under the chuppah at all your weddings and championing the right for everyone to be married; embracing you as you wept in grief and buried your loved ones; preaching and teaching a Torah of compassion, humility, and justice; leading the way in the broader community to build bridges and love all our neighbors: Christians, Muslims, Unitiarians, Immigrants, and fellow Jews.
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, California, 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.
We are hoping you will join us as an 18/30 Celebration Host by providing a leadership gift of:
- $30,180 Moral Courage
- $18,300 Spiritual Leadership
- $3,018 Life Cycle
- $1,830 Radical Hospitality
Hosts will also be invited to a special host dinner on Saturday, May 26 – to help welcome our special guests.
