KOHELET SILVERWARE

Apparently, most of Kohelet's silverware has "disappeared" of late.  Since we don't want to use plastic-ware and then toss it out, we have purchased new silverware for Kohelet use.  Please find, use, enjoy, and return all these pieces to the Kohelet closet adjoining the oven.  Let's all make sure none of this "disappears."
UPCOMING TALK ON SPANISH JEWS BY DANIELLA LEVY
Sat., Jan. 26 at 3:40 p.m.

Daniella Levy, Israeli author and daughter-in-law of former Kohelet members Mark and Nisa Levy, will present and lead a discussion for men and women on the Spanish Jews of the past and present, and how she incorporated her research on this topic into her novel, By Light of Hidden Candles. Daniella is also the author of Letters to Josep: An Introduction to Judaism. Her short fiction, articles, and poetry--in English, Hebrew, and Spanish--have been widely published on platforms such as Writer's Digest, The Times of Israel, and various literary magazines. She has been nominated for the Pushcart Prize for her short fiction. 

Presented for the community by the DAT Minyan in the BMH Library, Saturday, January 26 at 3:40 pm. Enter the building from the East parking lot.
FLORIDA CONDO RENTAL 

Diane Pincus and Tom Berl would like to see if anyone would like to rent a two bedroom condo on the ocean in Longboat Key Florida ( this is a key right off of the lovely town of Sarasota)

Diane and Tom usually go down from February 16 to March 9.

Unfortunately this year, Diane  had a shoulder injury and needs to have surgery on February first, and thus they are unable to go.

The  south facing condo has two bedrooms as individual suites.  It easily accommodates two couples.  There are chairs and umbrellas on the beach, a lovely pool, free bicycles to pedal around the Key and a work out room.

The rent is 1700 dollars a week, usually Saturday to Saturday.

The available weeks are: 2/16 to 2/23,  2/23 to 3/2 and 3/2 to 3/9

Contact Diane and Tom at 303-758-4029 or  dianepincus@aol.com
