Saturday, September 17th - Day of Celebration

Shabbat morning services will be led by Hannah Kapnik Ashar. It will all be outdoors at the Talmi/Hettleman residence, 495 Oneida Street.

There will be bonus activities, including a fascinating midrash discussion with Hannah, a touching remembrance of Alice Silverberg, an engaging Family Story workshop with Susan Berson and Deanne Kapnik, potluck lunch and a catered dinner.

New songs, too!


Childcare WILL be provided.

Do I HAVE to RSVP?
No, but it's better if you do.


(Except for the catered dinner - for that, you really should RSVP!)
...and...
Hannah has sent us a new melody to listen to if we want to be familiar with it when she sings it.

Then what happens next week..?
 
Mark your calendars! This year’s High Holydays start soon!
Please join us for Kohelet’s uniquely warm, welcoming, spiritual, and musical Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur Services.
 
We need your spirit and presence (in person or on a screen), to help us welcome 5783.
 
The services will be hybrid so that we can accommodate those who feel it important to be there in person as well as those who won't be there in person. We will have in-person services in the Kohelet Sanctuary. All services will also be available on Zoom as we've been doing the past two years.
 
We will have outdoor meals for Rosh Hashanah Day One lunch (catered lunch), Rosh Hashanah Day 2 lunch (potluck lunch) and Yom Kippur Break the Fast dinner (catered dinner).

LEARNING FROM THE BOOK OF PROVERBS
with Neiel Baronberg

"Solomon reminds us to keep wisdom and understanding close to our heart.  The teachings from God is we must bind to our thinking and write them on the tablet of our mind."

INVITATION FROM A FRIEND
 
Join Jon Gottsegen, an old friend of Kohelet, on a "spirit hike" Sunday morning September 18. The point of these walks is to slow down to enhance our awareness of and connection to nature, to listen, feel, and notice. We open up to what nature can teach us about ourselves and our relationship to Spirit. We'll also chant a little, learn a little and generally celebrate creation.

Since this involves a process of slowing down, we don't go far. The focus for this walk will be selichot and teshuvah, since we'll be deep in the teshuvah process of Elul. We'll see how the natural world can support our teshuvah process.

Trained as a Jewish Spiritual Director, Jon recently was certified as a Forest Bathing (shinrin yoku in Japanese) guide and holds a Wilderness First Responder certification.
