It has been a while since we last celebrated Shabbat together, but the wait is over. A week from tomorrow, we will hold our first Friday night service of the year 5776. We will begin at 6pm with kiddish and a vegetarian potluck dinner in the Kol Ami Youth Lounge. Then we will have our service in the Pepper Chapel beginning at 7:30pm. We will have first-time service leaders in the persons of Susan and Marty Zuckerman. (If the service is half as good as the food that the Zuckermans contribute to our potluck, the service will be terrific.)
Next Friday the 30th will be special for another reason. Kol Ami’s new cantor, Wendy Bat-Sarah, will be installed that weekend. She will be honored at both their Friday night and Saturday morning services. After the Kol Ami Friday night service, Cantor Bat-Sarah will drop in on our service so that we can help to celebrate this important event in the life of Utah’s Jewish community.
(Our next Friday night service will be November 20th, not the Friday of Thanksgiving weekend. It will be led by Rebecca and Alex Wilson.)
