What I Set My Heart To: Coming of Age Credo Service
Our human ancestors had traditions and rituals to help mark the time of Coming of Age. Even in our world today, our youth face challenges that are made easier by their participation in an intentionally created time of preparation, centering, introspection, deep connections with peers, and mentorship.  Our ninth and 10th graders have been engaged in just such a process this year. On May 21, they will present their creative statements to the congregation in a Credo Service – one of our most beloved UU traditions.

Rev. Duncan Teague, Guest Minister
Love’s Hands and Feet
Is it possible for people who crave rationale process and clearly articulated arguments to embrace the principle of
“Embodiment”. Our guest, Rev. Duncan Teague, founding minister of the Abundant LUUv Unitarian Universalist Ministry in Atlanta says loudly, “YES”. This morning he presents his belief that we must embody what we believe and he dares to claim that what we believe in is love that moves and acts.

Compassionate Father: Reclaiming the Mystical Divine Masculine
Rabbi Justin Goldstein, Guest Speaker
In honor of Father’s Day, we will reflect on the attributes and characteristics of the Divine
Masculine in the Jewish mystical tradition and explore ways every one of us can find opportunities to explore and embody these traits.
Rabbi Justin Goldstein has served Congregation Beth Israel since 2014. Deeply committed to pluralism and egalitarianism in all forms, Justin is proud to be a fellow with Rabbis Without Borders and was recently named one of the Most Inspiring Rabbis of 2016 by the historic newspaper, The Jewish Daily Forward.
