ANNOUNCEMENTS

SHABBAT SERVICES AND SAMMY WEISER'S BAR MITZVAH
Sat., Nov. 7

When you get the Zoom link on Friday for Shabbat services, it will look a little different. The invitation will invite you to a Zoom webinar. We need to use that format because of the large number of guests who will attend. Just click on the link. You may then be asked for your name and email. Supply that information, click, and you will be there. Like any webinar, you will be muted and will not be able to see the other attendees at home. But you will be able to see all those participating. Please join us in helping Sammy and his family celebrate this special simcha.

JOIN THE COMMUNITY OF SLACKERS!

Steve Cardin has set up an account on the app Slack for the Kohelet community. Slack is a free app you can download onto your phone or computer. It can serve as a chat room or forum for announcements or notifications for Kohelet members and friends. It will not replace the Newsletter or email. It's just one more tool we can use to stay in touch with one another. Many people have already joined. You can only join by invitation, so if you wish to join, please email Misty, (davidson.misty@gmail.com) and she will send you an invitation.

CLEAN SPEECH

November is clean speech month. Last year Kohelet, along with 60 other local Jewish organizations, participated in this initiative started by Rabbi Leban of The Jewish Experience. Rabbi Leban has expanded the curriculum this year to address how words can help or hurt, and  why how we say what we say matters. We will be offering some virtual congregational activities in this area during November. More to come.

LIBRARY SHABBAT
Fri., Nov. 13 at 6:00 p.m.

The last Library Shabbat of 2020 will take place virtually on Friday, November 13, at 6:00 pm. Please email Misty (davidson.misty@gmail.com) if you wish to attend. If you are attending, Misty will send you the Zoom link from her personal email (not Kohelet's) the day before.

TABLET MAGAZINE TALKS TO NATAN SHARANSKY
 
Many of us remember adopting Soviet Refusnik families and writing to them in the 70's and 80's.  Natan and Avital Sharansky were among the most well known among the Refusniks.  The article below contains a message for American Jews today.
