We require a minyan in order to say Mourner’s Kaddish. Rabbi David Steinberg also will be available to visit individual graves at the cemetery upon request to chant El Malei Rachamim, the prayer for the dead.

Discussion on Justice

“Justice, justice you shall pursue…”

Deuteronomy 16:20

Our congregation includes a remarkable group of attorneys committed to social justice who will participate in a panel discussion on “Issues of Justice” during Shabbat evening service, beginning at 5:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 19. 

Come hear Fred Friedman and Susan Ginsburg, public defenders; Gunnar Johnson, city attorney; Theresa Neo, city attorney and district court judge; and Dori Streit, director of Duluth’s volunteer attorney program. They will share how their own life experiences and values brought them to this particular work they do in the community, and talk about what kinds of cases have been especially challenging, rewarding and even transformative for them.
