TUESDAY NIGHT AT THE MOVIES
POSTPONED. 

We regret to inform you that the premiere of  Tuesday Night at the Movies has had to be postponed, due to infrastructure problems in the Kohelet Sanctuary. Once repairs have been made and all equipment can function, we will let you know about a re-scheduled date.

MEALS FOR THE HOMELESS
CANCELLED. 

This event in which members of Kohelet would have participated has been changed to Saturday April 19.  Given that it occurs during our Shabbat services and the morning after the first seder, Kohelet will not be participating as a community.  We will join the Lowry Community Church for their next preparation and distribution of meals to homeless on Thansksgiving day.  Please email Bennett Parnes if you have any questions.
