On Friday, November 22nd, we’ll use the new prayer book Voice of the Children to keep the service intergenerational (both kid and adult friendly). The Torah portion this week, Vayeshev, tells the story of Joseph’s brothers betraying him, so we have rich material for discussion. Joanne Slotnik & Steve Trimble will lead the service this week.
Let’s connect our Tzedakah with the story of Joseph’s many-colored coat: please bring a surplus coat to donate, and we’ll make sure that our pile of donated coats arrives at Crossroads Urban Center just in time for the onset of cold weather.
Karen Nielson-Anson and Mary Danzig will lead our music. Keri Sanders will work on menorah-making with the kids.
As always, we start with a vegetarian potluck at 6:00 pm in the Youth Lounge at Kol Ami. Please use the Youth Lounge doors when you arrive for the potluck. The evening service will start at 7:30 pm.
See you on Friday night.
And while you are marking your calendars, remember the Hanukah party on Sunday, December 1st.
Our sukkah at the Cohens, 2013.
Now it’s time to turn again – this time to the pleasures of Sukkot. We will gather for a vegetarian potluck dinner at the home of Kathi and Sam Cohen on Friday night, September 20th, at 6 pm (aka 6:15 pm Chavurah time). Kathi and Sam live at 1541 East Logan Avenue (1620 South). We won’t be holding an extended service, but you will get to shake a lulav and inhale the sweet smell of an esrog. If you are so inclined, please bring something seasonal with which to decorate the sukkah. We will be celebrating the holiday outdoors, so also bring a jacket or sweater if it looks like it might be a cool evening.
CBY will sponsor a moving and powerful event at 3:00 on Sunday afternoon, April 21st, 2013 at McGillis School in Salt Lake City (668 South 1300 East). Organized by CBY’s Mary Danzig (of Otter Creek), this concert will celebrate the release of a CD of folk songs addressing the challenge of climate change through the many voices of artists concerned with eco-justice. All ten local musicians featured on the CD will perform.
Ticket sales ($7 adults / $3 children / $20 family) will benefit Peaceful Uprising and Wild Utah Project.
We have a lively CBY weekend coming up. Friday, March 22nd: Rabbi Jane Litman of the Jewish Reconstructionist Federation will lead CBY’s Shabbat services in the Pepper Chapel.
Sunday, March 24th: Future of CBY Discussion brunch, at the home of Joanne Slotnik & Steve Trimble, 10 to 12.
Our February 22nd service at the Pepper Chapel will be a Purim celebration . In preparation for Purim, we are planning a Mask Making event at the Fogel’s on Sunday, February 17th from 1:00 – 4:00. Everyone is welcome, both children and adults. Come prepared to make a mask and to prepare for a role in the Purim play the following Friday night. Bring a light snack to share.
Please let the Fogels know if you are planning to come to the Sunday afternoon event so that we will be prepared with enough materials. Email Jacqueline at jlfogel [at] comcast.net
