36th San Francisco Jewish Film FestivalJul. 21–Aug. 7Presented by the Jewish Film Institute.
Please join Peninsula Temple Sholom at the screening of the documentary “Holy Zoo” by Katharina Waisburd of Germany. Wednesday, Jul. 27, at the CinéArts Theatre in Palo Alto:
In Jerusalem’s Biblical Zoo, Israelis and Palestinians work alongside one another to tend to the zoo’s elephants, crocodiles and rhinos. Inevitably, tensions within and across animal species reflect themselves in the mostly good-natured, always edgy interactions between employees, who lead regular tours of Muslim and Jewish schoolchildren through the zoo’s grounds. Katharina Waisburd’s keen eye results in an unforgettable lens into the current conflict in the Holy Land.

Saturday Aug. 13, 2016, 7:00–8:30 p.m.Peninsula Temple SholomWith Rabbi Molly Plotnik and Rabbi Lisa Kingston
Join PTS and Peninsula Temple Beth El with support from Reform CA as we will dedicate our contemporary observance of Tisha B’av to remembering what happened to us — and still happens every day to those in physical, spiritual, and emotional exile.
Tisha B’Av, or the 9th of Av, commemorates many tragedies in Jewish history, most notably the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem in 586 BCE and again in 70 CE. As a community we mourn the occasion when Jews were cast out of our land and spread into the diaspora around the world.
Our evening will begin with a study session to help us transform the mourning of our Temple’s destruction and the societal ills that led to the destruction into a call of action with our hands, feet, and hearts to repair the wrongs in today’s society. We will conclude with an evening prayer service and a modern chanting from Eichah, the Book of Lamentations.
Shabbat Morning @ SholomSaturday, Aug. 27, 10:30-11:30 a.m.
Music is soothing and uplifting, particularly when we are in need of healing. At this creative service, the soaring and soulful music and prayers led by Rabbi Dan Feder and Emily Pelc will serve as a spiritual healing balm.
Tuesday, Aug. 30, 7:15 p.m.

The PTS Mission
Whether in the synagogue, each other's homes, or the world beyond, Peninsula Temple Sholom creates a sacred space for those who are part of it.
We live Jewish values and apply the wisdom of our teachings to modern life through prayer, study and action.
We sustain Jewish culture through communal engagement in lifecycle events, the celebration of Shabbat and holidays, and the pleasure of laughing and learning together.
We strengthen our community by caring for one another and the world around us.
We honor our heritage and build a strong future by fostering connections with the Jewish people in the U.S., in Israel and around the world.
