ANNOUNCEMENTS

CONGRATS TO OUR GRADUATES!

Here are Kohelet’s 2020 graduates. We are so proud of them. Congratulations to them and their families.

Clockwise from top: Elyza Berry will be attending University of Oregon; Jesse Hettleman will be attending CU Boulder; Shira Fox will be attending Cornell College.

ALICE SILVERBERG

Our dear Alice Silverberg is understandably very lonely these days in the residential place where she lives, and would very much welcome phone calls.  (She doesn't have a computer, and her mail doesn't seem to get delivered very reliably.)

Please give her a call if you have a chance:  (661) 802-7887
She'd love to hear from you!
Many thanks.
