Freedom from Hunger event at Temple Shalom

Congregation Temple Shalom held a very successful “Freedom from Hunger” event on Friday, July 13, 2012 wherein Rabbi Miles and the congregation’s new Cantor-in-Residence, Adele Nicholson, inspired with their words and songs! For more on this event, you can get the full story at the Community (or a copy of this month’s edition), but we’ll leave you this Friday with lyrics from one of the compelling songs sung at this event.

Far From The Arms Of Hunger, by Jackson Browne

Far from the arms of hunger, far from the world disorder
Beyond the reach of warfare, blinded by faith no longer.

No longer free to plunder, No longer safe to rule
A world no longer ours alone;
Where people walk in wonder and speak to one another
And recognize as brother the face across the border

Across a sea of differences,  Across the drifting sands
The joining of our hands in time.

When will we find we can no longer look away?
When will we mind the killing in our name each day?

When we decide that all our might just weighs us down?
Then will we find the means to turn our world around.

When will we find? When will we mind?
When we decide; the means to turn our world around.


Far from the arms of hunger, far from the world disorder
Beyond the reach of war, there is a world where we belong.
