SEMPLICE CONCERT
Sat., Nov. 16 at 7:30 p.m.

 

We're excited to let you know about Semplice's upcoming concert, on Saturday November 16 at 7:30 pm! “From the Temple to the Dance Floor” is a journey through the music of Jewish composers from the 15th through the 18th century, and then forward into the Klezmer tradition of Eastern Europe. This is a reprise of our 2016 and 2018 concerts, finally offered in central Denver, at Kohelet (428 S. Forest St, Denver 80246). Please come even if you have seen it before - we promise there will be new twists! Tickets are $18 (or give what you can afford) at our website or at the door.

 

Hope to see you there!

-Semplice

(Miriam Rosenblum, recorders and clarinet

 Carla Sciaky, viola da gamba and violin

 Ben Cohen, lutes, tsimbl and accordion

 Joy Adams, baroque and modern cello)

MEALS FOR THE HOMELESS
Thurs., Nov. 28 at 8:00 a.m.

 

Kohelet will once again be participating in the preparation and delivery of ~1500 meals for the homeless on Thanksgiving morning at Lowry Community Church (855 Yosemite).  We plan to arrive at 8am on November 28.  The work is usually finished between 11 and 12.  You don't have to stay till the end, and you can arrive late. Those who participated last year universally found the experience to be rewarding. Please let Bennett (parnesb@gmail.com) know if you plan to join us--he will keep everyone posted on any last minute details or changes.

Kohelet is partnering with many other organizations to promote November as Clean Speech Month.  

Clean Speech Colorado is not just about what we say. It’s about who we are.

“Sticks and stones can break my bones, but words can never hurt me.”  Although this might be a common childhood defense mechanism to avoid being deflated and depressed by some bully’s ugly comment, it certainly isn’t true. The destructive impact of words can last a long time, deeply affecting the course of a person’s life, compromising their self-esteem, and eroding their significant relationships.  To make matters worse, once said, words are virtually impossible to retract.

Download the PDF booklet of your 30-day clean speech practice for many helpful insights regarding lashon hora.  For example, "daily to-do’s" such as these:

-Imagine that Siri or Alexa is transcribing your every word and sharing it with the person you’re talking about.

-Think of some words that affected you deeply from a long time ago and how they impact you today.

-Today, keep your ears open for comments that address a whole group of people at one time, and consider how you might modify your own speech to eliminate such comments.

Rabbi Telushkin will be speaking at the JCC Wolf Theatre on Nov. 18 at 7 p.m.  His topic is: "Words That Hurt, Words That Heal."
