Traveling Tashlich – A Hike in the Woods

September 22, 2020 - 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Bring your bread crumbs and join the CSZ clergy for this opportunity to ritually cast your sins into the water. Come masked and dressed for bugs, mud, or weather conditions as we take a walk through the beautiful, hidden woods west of Bell Road to a “secret” bridge over the Rouge River (please note: the terrain is uneven and not for those unstable on their feet). From Bell Road, turn west onto Valley Crest Dr. and then south onto River Crest Drive. There, at the southern end of River Crest, we will gather and then walk together into the woods.

Pre-registration is required for in-person experiences, which are also subject to weather.

Read with the Rabbi – How to be an Antiracist

October 22, 2020 - 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Read the book, then join Rabbi Aaron Starr and Jeri Fishman for a discussion on the award-winning book by Ibram X. Kendi. Click HERE to join on Zoom.

Named one of the best books of the year by multiple newspapers, How to Be an Antiracist seeks to reorient and re-energize the conversation about racism—and, even more fundamentally, points us toward liberating new ways of thinking about ourselves and each other. In How to Be an Antiracist, Kendi takes readers through a widening circle of antiracist ideas—from the most basic concepts to visionary possibilities—that will help readers see all forms of racism clearly, understand their poisonous consequences, and work to oppose them in our systems and in ourselves. The author weaves an electrifying combination of ethics, history, law, and science with his own personal story of awakening to antiracism. This is an essential work for anyone who wants to go beyond the awareness of racism to the next step: contributing to the formation of a just and equitable society.
