MAKING OUR SHABBATS FESTIVE

We encourage you to sign up at the Annual Meeting to co-sponsor part of a Kiddush lunch some upcoming Saturday at Kohelet.

Think about a specific occasion you might like to celebrate or acknowledge:  An anniversary, a  yahrtzeit,a birthday, a kid's graduation, the birth of a grandchild.....or do it just for the joy of it!

Our Kiddush lunches are so central to our getting together as a community, and they're all the more festive with some slightly more festive food (lox and bagels?  salmon?  soup and salad?  your favorite dish?)

It doesn't need to be elaborate or expensive, and, if you want, feel free to co-sponsor with another one or two families.
 
Look for the sign up at the Kohelet Annual Meeting, and also please be thinking about what committee(s) you'd like to sign up for that night.

Make this the year to take on some new and different duty, and learn while having fun (certainly with a partner/mentor if that's appropriate).
 
See you February 10th!
