Be a part of our next Sunday morning discussion with Dr. Eugen Schoenfeld on November 10th at 11 AM at JF&CS, 4549 Chamblee Dunwoody
He'll be be continuing his discussion about the day of rest within the Jewish tradition -- how the innovative notion of sacred time that Jews gave the world hasn't worked out in the way we intended and what we can do as American Jews to change that.
There's no charge and the bagels and coffee are on us.

Shema Yisrael - The Open Synagogue
The Shema Yisrael Mission
The Shema Yisrael mission is to be a synagogue embracing all that is Jewish.
We seek to nurture an inclusive and caring spiritual community reflecting Klal Yisrael
(The Peoplehood of Israel) and are dedicated to the premise that "we can worship G-D in holiness
only as we serve one another in love."
Shema Yisrael is also committed to fostering cooperative efforts to bring together
Atlanta Jewry through a wide range of educational, social, and cultural experiences.
Shema Yisrael believes that American Jewry is on the brink of an exciting era. The challenge,
as we see it, is whether American Jews, living in the most accepting and generous society in Jewish history,
can create dynamic compelling communities that are capable of welcoming everyone.
We seek to be an inclusive and welcoming community for singles, families, and senior adults:
for the knowledgeable Jew or the Jew just beginning his or her Jewish journey.
Central to our commitment is the belief that it is possible to create a viable Jewish
worship community out of the diverse strands of Jewish experience and that begins with the acceptance
of one Jew for another.
