BABY NEWS

Mazel Tov! Ben and Daphna Kapnik gave birth to a beautiful baby boy on February 17. Baby and mom are beautiful (!), and not quite up to leaving the house, so there will not be a public bris.
We're hoping to celebrate with our community at sometime in the future!
If you'd like to send congratulations to the mom and dad, you can contact koheletadmin@gmail.com for their address.
L'chaim!

KOHELET ANNUAL DUES ARE DUE NOW.

Rates have not increased since last year. Please click here to pay online by credit card or to indicate you will send a check.

Thank you to all who have remitted annual dues. To those not yet in the fold please take a moment to do this online now. Our programming and assurance depends on your participation. If you are able, extra donations at this time are also very much appreciated as our dues have remained stable. Help get us launched for a good start by increasing our financial reserves.

Bring us a question! We love prepared, researched talks on the weekly parsha.
But we also thrive when someone brings a question related to the parsha that we can discuss. The following days are available for someone to lead a Torah discussion based on a question. Click here to sign up.

PURIM ORGANIZER NEEDED

MUST ENJOY LAUGHING AND 3-CORNER COOKIES
Do you love a good party? Fun and frivolity? Hangings and Hamentaschen? Masks and Megillahs? Please consider signing up to organize Kohelet's Purim celebration on March 23rd. It's wide open, and a great way to exercise your creativity (and we all know that the key to any successful holiday chair is delegate, delegate, delegate. Makes things so much easier, and so much more fun!) Let Robyn know if you're interested and want to know more about what's involved. chj1908@aol.com

A TOUR OF PROVERBS/MISHLEI WITH NEIEL

Proverbs 6

Lazybones, go to the ant;
Study its ways and learn.
Without leaders, officers or rulers,
It lays up its stores during the summer,
Gathers in it stood at the harvest;
How long will you lie there?
When will you wake from your sleep?

Here is where you can sign up for Shabbat participation and for committees.
Thank you in advance for your good work!
Note that there are now multiple slots to sign up to co-lead a service
or a part of a service, as well as multiple slots to read a section of Torah
on each Shabbat.
