We will rely on our collective ability to prepare wonderful, vegetarian food. (Later, you will be asked to sign up for food items to bring.) If there is a charge to cover basic items such as wine and seder plate fixings, the charge will be very reasonable.
Please let Rob Mayer know ASAP if you plan to attend.
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.
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.
As part of our decision to focus on intergenerational services, Shabbat services on Friday, October 25th will feature the Reconstructionist prayer book for children, The Voice of Children in an evening equally accessible to families, kids, and adults. Service leaders Jack and Joyce Dolcourt will moderate the thought-provoking discussion; Mary and Peter Danzig will provide the violin and mandolin music.We will start with a vegetarian potluck at 6:00 pm in the Youth Lounge at Kol Ami Synagogue, 2425 E. Heritage Way. Please use the Youth Lounge doors to the north when you arrive for the potluck. The evening service will start at 7:30 pm in the Pepper Chapel.
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.
