Student Rabbi CJ Mays: Bearing Witness from Israel

Friday, February 2
6:00 pm
Vegetarian Shabbat Potluck Dinner
Open Temple House

Home from a trip to Israel, Student Rabbi CJ’s emotional trip was motivated by his desire to do one thing: bear witness. 

CJ invites you to share a meal at a potluck Shabbat dinner and hold space to mourn those we lost on 10/7, deepen our understanding of a changing world and find meaning through Jewish community.

“Sing unto God a new song.” -Psalm 96

If God is already tired, as suggests the Psalm, of hearing the old song, all the more so will ordinary mortals be. -Alcalay (20th c. Jewish lexicographer)
