New Sign-Up Process


Of course you don’t know your schedule next fall or even next summer. To overcome this problem, Kohelet is instituting a three-times a year Shabbat sign up process, beginning at our annual meeting on January 31.

  1. Sign up at the annual meeting for February – May: two times per person set-up/clean-up
  2. Sign up in May for June-August: one time per person set-up/clean up
  3. Sign up in August for September-January: two times per person set-up/clean up

Annual meeting sign ups will be hard copy. After the annual meeting you can sign up online or by e-mailing koheletadmin@gmail.com.

At the annual meeting you can also sign up for committees as well as d’vrei Torah, laining Torah, and leading services.

Members,
We will begin a tour of Proverbs - Mishlei.
There are 31 chapters and each week I will extract several verses to consider.

- Neiel
Proverbs 1: The proverbs of Solomon son of David, king of Israel:
To know wisdom and discipline.
To comprehend words of discernment;
To receive the discipline of righteousness, justice and equity;
To give prudence to the simple and to the young knowledge and foresight.

Many Kohelet folks are planning visits to Israel, and I want to ask you to stop in at our project for children living near the Gaza border.
I, Alan Brandt, Raz Arbel, and Hazel and Herzl Melmed started Biking for Kids for Under Fire several years ago to provide a therapeutic outlet for children living under tremendous tensions and danger. It has grown to be quite extensive and with Israeli residents running these bike clubs for local, safe outings. You will see signs saying “Thank you Denver”!, and you can talk to people in Denver who have visited one of the sites (Leanna H. and family just did an extended family Bat Mitzvah visit there). Check our Facebook page if you’d like more details: https://www.facebook.com/Biking-for-Kids-Under-Fire-160334357363249/?fref=ts or email me: joanyaffa@gmail.com
