Help Us Celebrate Shir Tikvah’s 18/30
Project for Shir Tikvah Congregation

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 as a Rabbi and our 30th anniversary as a congregation!

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.
Our goal for the 18/30 Celebration is to raise $90,000 to support Shir Tikvah’s social justice initiatives and the congregation’s holy, community-building work. In addition, we want to support our longtime partner in justice—Jewish Community Action (JCA)—by donating a portion of what we raise to JCA.

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 
We hope to have gathered all of the host donations by April 15th - so that the weekend’s events will be accessible and affordable to everyone in the community who wishes to attend. No games, no auctions, no asks, and no guilt—just celebration. Your generous support can make this a reality.

Hosts will also be invited to a special host dinner on Saturday, May 26 – to help welcome our special guests.
  • About Shir Tikvah -Shir Tikvah is a kehillah kedosha (holy community) joyfully revealing the intersections of talmud torah (lifelong Torah study), t'filah (prayer), tzedakah (justice), and hachnasat orchim (radical hospitality). We creatively wrestle with tradition and innovation as we invigorate Jewish spiritual life and transform the world.
  • Our Partner in Social Justice: Jewish Community Action’s mission is to bring together Jewish people from diverse traditions and perspectives to promote understanding and take action on racial and economic justice issues in Minnesota.
