Order of Service, June 4, 2017


Prelude: Olam Chesed Nibaneh (A righteous world we will build)

Welcome, Announcements

Opening Words

Lighting the Chalice Flame (in unison):
Let the lighting of this flame rekindle in us the inner light of love, of peace, of joy, of hope. And as one flame lights another, we pledge ourselves to be bearers of the light wherever we are.

Quiet Time/Meditation/ Prayer  

Song: Creation by Barry Silver
Sung by Barry Silver and Elaine Silver

Offertory: Eliyahu Ha-Navi

Affirmation (in unison) Love is the spirit of this congregation and service is its law. This is our great covenant: to dwell together in peace, to seek the truth in love and to help one another.

Responsive Reading #637:  A Litany of Atonement

Sermon: Standing on The Side of Love with 
    Our Muslim Brothers and Sisters
                   Rabbi Barry Silver

*Hymn #123: Spirit of Life

Extinguishing the Chalice Flame (in unison) We extinguish this flame, but not the light of truth, the warmth of community, or the fire of commitment. These we carry in our hearts until we are together again.

Closing Words
