TACOS AND MARGARITA BAR AT ANNUAL MEETING -- OLE!
Sun., Jan. 26 at 5:00 p.m.
 
Mark your calendars now for our Annual Meeting, Sunday January 26, 5:00 p.m., which promises stimulating food for thought and deliciosa food (and drinks) for the body.
 
5:00:  Sign-ups for the year.*  We all know that it takes the participation of every single member for Kohelet to thrive.  Whether you're setting up for our weekly Kiddush lunch, delivering a D'var Torah, helping organize one of our many holidays, or volunteering your house maintenance expertise, be sure to contribute and sign up for Shabbat set-up and the committee(s) that speak to you.  Spread your wings and try something new this year!  It's sure to be a rewarding experience.   Nuestra casa es tu casa -- our Beit Kohelet is your Beit Kohelet.....and we all say  gracias!
 
5:00 - 6:00.  Enjoy our fun, festive and delicious Tacos and Margarita Bar, provided by the board.  Enjoy the company of your Kohelet  familia (especially once they've had a mouth-watering Margarita!) as you partake in this spectacular spread.
 
6:00 - 7:30.  In addition to conducting the necessary business of the year, we'll host a discussion of members' visions and expectations for the year.  We are soliciting 4-5 members to briefly address the congregation about their thoughts about Kohelet in 2020, their ideas and hopes for the coming year, and/or their comments about the previous year.  Please contact Dan Savin (daniel.savin@ucdenver.edu) or Misty (misty917@comcast.net) if you'd like to speak.  
 
We hope that all will attend and participate, as full participation is what drives the health of the congregation.   Viva el futuro de Kohelet!

*ANNUAL MEETING SIGNUPS

The Annual Meeting is almost here. We are asking everyone to please come, please participate, and please volunteer for something. Kohelet works because of people like you. We are a volunteer organization. This gives us the freedom to do thing our way, yet it puts lots of responsibility on all of us. Please join us so Kohelet can continue to be the unique, special place that it is.

Your Kohelet Presidents,
Dan Savin and  Misty Davidson
THANK YOU!

I want to thank all the individuals who contributed furniture and other items to my family of legal asylum seekers, sponsored by the Bobb family and the "village" that supports them.  They are thrilled and so grateful by all your acts of chesid.  While this was not an official project of Kohelet, I do so appreciate your help with this.

PARSHA VAERA
HIGHLIGHT: ISRAEL

American College Professors Visit Israel

 https://www.jns.org/us-professors-visit-israel-for-bridge-building-mission-with-israeli-universities/

The program seeks “to link the scholars with Israeli professors from their respective disciplines with the goal of developing collaborations, research projects, co-authoring articles and establishing exchange programs between faculty and students.” One of the visitors commented: I felt “inspired on a professional level by the Israeli grit, industriousness and spirit of pride in Israel…Israelis view failure as a step forward, while in the U.S., failure is a bad thing."
