"The New Colossus": Music of the Jewish Immigrant Experience - a special concert program

Emma Lazarus' 1883 sonnet, "The New Colossus," inscribed on the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty, has served as a beacon of welcome and hope to generations of immigrants who came to our shores seeking refuge and freedom. In this musical celebration of our rich Jewish musical heritage from artists who were immigrants and refugees we will revel in chamber music, songs, liturgical settings, and works for Yiddish teater created by composers such as Bela Bartok, Ernest Bloch, Kurt Weill, Sholom Secunda, Irving Berlin, Miguel del Aguila, and Regina Spektor.

Chanukah Shabbat

Bring your favorite menorah (and candles!) from home to light during Chanukah Shabbat services, and fill our sanctuary with light, joy and music. While you're at it, bring a clean, warm jacket or raincoat for us to distribute to our REST (winter shleter) guests, and/or a new toy for the San Rafael Santa Cops to distribute to kids in need. Come fill our sanctuary with light and joy and music!

Please note that while this service falls on the 3rd Friday of the month, the service will begin at 6:15 (not 7:30) pm.

Johnny Doughnuts

Johnny Doughnuts will be serving our version of sufganiyot, coffee and hot chocolate before services start at 6:15 pm. There's no better way to ruin your dinner than a few doughnuts on a Friday evening - c'mon, it's Chanukah!

The Future of REST and Homelessness in Marin County

About a dozen religious institutions in Marin take turns allowing the homeless to sleep in their buildings.

Bentley Stewart, Interfaith Street Chaplain, to discuss the future of this important service.
