We will end our Shabbat weekend with Rabbi Brian with havdallah, refreshments and a conversation.  His topic will be:

For out of Zion shall go forth Torah, and the word of God, the Source of all life, from Jerusalem! (Siddur) And they shall come to my Holy Mountain…. My house shall be a house of prayer for all people.

Inspired by these two verses - one that we sing every time we take out the Torah, the other a verse from the universal prophetic vision of Isaiah - Rabbi Brian will share his own journey in relationship to Zion/Israel and more broadly toward a universal, Diaspora-centered Judaism. What is our relationship to Zion/Israel and how can we honestly share our different perspectives while continuing to be a bold Jewish voice for justice, dignity and human rights for all? Following Rabbi Brian’s reflections, there will be time for open conversation followed by refreshments.
