One day, Rachel was biking along Minnehaha Parkway when she turned her head to the right and - there's a synagogue there! Three days later, she saw a job posting in TC Jewfolk for a Religious School teacher at that same synagogue, and a week later, Rachel attended her first Shabbat service at what's now a second home, six years later.
In addition to being a kehillah kedoshah, a holy community, Shir Tikvah's dedication to radical hospitality takes us out of our (very cramped) building on the creek and into the streets to do social justice work. Our rabbis and lay leaders were instrumental in the campaign to defeat the marriage amendment. We're a sanctuary synagogue and regularly, repeatedly stand for the rights of immigrants and POC (and not just our members!). Our teens lobbied for gun control - of their own volition - in DC last year. And to continue our work both within and outside our community, we need donations.
Please join Rachel & Donald in giving (multiples of $18) to keep our song of hope, our shir tikvah, going.
