ברית גטו שול – The Ghetto Shul Covenant

A community and a family are like a pile of stones. If you remove one stone, the pile will collapse, but if you add a stone to it, it will remain standing.
Genesis Rabbah 100:7

The deepest wisdom one can attain is to know that his destiny is to aid, to serve
Abraham Joshua Heschel,

Be the change you want to see in the world
Mahatma Ghandi

The Ghetto Shul is entering into a new and exciting phase: we are now an entirely student-led community. Our membership system is changing to a work-share model to reflect our new identity and to ensure our viability as a community. Being a member does not just mean “buying in” so that your costs are covered. It means taking on a commitment to be an active participant in the Ghetto Shul community.

I, ____________________________________, hereby agree to become a Ghetto Shul member for the 2012-2013 school year.
I will be an active member, concerning myself and developing the spiritual, physical and social aspects of the community. For this purpose, I will attend a bi-weekly Ghetto Shul gathering, at which delicious food will be served and communal decisions will be made.

Our first gathering will be held on Tuesday October 16th at 6:30 PM at 3515 Durocher (apt 63)

I understand that I will be called upon occasionally to help with logistical tasks, and to help prepare, serve for, or clean up after meals.
I also commit to providing the following service to the Ghetto Shul community on a regular basis, totaling 18 hours or more per semester:

Welcome to the Ghetto Shul!

Located in the heart of the McGill Student Ghetto, the Shul acts as the magnetic core of the downtown Jewish community. This student-run initiative draws both students and young professionals together to celebrate and engage their Judaism in a welcoming environment.

At any given moment something is happening at the Ghetto Shul. Be it a giant Friday night dinner, a lively Thursday night class, a Monday night jam session, or a social action fundraiser, anyone can experience the warmth of Jewish life.

On this WordPress site, you can learn more about the shul and its various activities.
