This Shabbat, we join over 200 communities worldwide in commemorating the eighth annual Truah: Human Rights Shabbat focused on the intersection of Jewish values and universal human rights.

We will explore human rights in the light of racial justice issues in the forefront of American life. Mishkan member Kohenet Shoshanah Bricklin will chant a special haftarah of the Declaration of Human Rights, which she created, and Rabbi Myriam Klotz will guide us in embodying our prayers through breathing and movement. Our Zayin class will participate in leading our service, as they prepare to be come B'nai Mitzvah in the coming year.

This T'ruah (formerly Rabbis for Human Rights) initiative educates Jewish communities about the intersection of Jewish values and universal human rights. Mishkan Shalom is one of over 200 communities throughout North America, Europe and Israel -- including congregations, Hillels, hospitals, and havurot -- participating in this special Shabbat.

T'ruah is the name of one of the calls of the shofar (ram's horn), calling us to repair the brokenness of the world. Read more about the name here.
