ShnUpdate - Perach 12.03.20
On Sunday we had Shachrit which was run by Clem and Mia which was a stunning way to bring us into the week which we had ahead. We had some of our friends bring us the latest news and keep us up to date with the world.
We followed that by an interesting conversation on the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians which challenged our minds and made us think and that was followed by a hadracha session which we stated making peulot and adjusting them. We ended off our night with a calming session run by Cayla and a sing song sort of night which was run by Guy Morad.
Tuesday morning we had a shacharit with the Klal Yisrael fellowship, a Progressive leadership program for young leaders of our communities around the world. It was really lovely to meet Progressives Jews from around the world and to share our customs. We had an amazing politics session with Ady which made us critically evaluate our movement and how we act. It also reinforced our world view. Our Zionism session evaluated our own anti-Semitic experiences and we studied anti-Semitism through the ages and how it's changed over time.
For Purim we have hadn't holiday and have celebrated it accordingly. On the 11th a local cultural hub arranged a Purim Parade with floats and music. It was one of the best experiences of Shnat so far, especially because we could properly celebrate a Jewish festival in a country-wide sense for the first time. Two chanichim, Avishai and Noam, played at Naveh Tehilah for Purim. We are so proud of them for playing and they were truly connected to the celebration of Purim. We have all stayed safe during the Corona Virus outbreak and have taken extra proportions to ensure our continued health and welfare. Many people have been unfortunately affected by the travel restrictions as unfortunately relatives are unable to visit.
