Nitzanim for Kids and Families: Hineini

In this session, "Hineini – Who Am I?" we will begin the exploration of self that is traditional as we lead into the Jewish new year. With story, text, song – and scavenger hunt! – in this beautiful park, our young people will ask the question, "what makes me me?"

Meanwhile, parents will gather with Reb Irwin to talk about "hineini", which literally means "I am here." This key Hebrew word can be seen as an invitation to radical presence. In particular, as our family lives unfold, what does it mean for us to be radically present for each other (particularly in multi-faith families)?

Tisha B'Av

Tisha B'Av

Tisha B’Av commemorates the destruction of our Temple in Jerusalem in 586 BCE and again in 70 CE. We also consider and mourn all the losses and exiles we have faced as Jews over the centuries. This is also a chance to notice the exiles of today and the dangers facing the planet. We will chant from the Book of Lamentations, offer medieval kinnot (poetry of lament), sing together, and offer our blessings to all who are displaced and in danger.
