SECURITY

At its most recent meeting, the Board wanted to let our members know that we are concerned about security and are investigating various security measures, including the possibility of changing our open front door to a locked door with a key pad.  We will have a risk assessment by the Denver Police and are getting advice from the ADL.

CHRISTMAS DAY MITZVAH
Tues., Dec. 25, 8 a.m.

Interested in participating in a wonderful Christmas Day mitzvah?  Bennett Parnes has the perfect project for you!

Bennett has a warm, personal contact with Lowry Community Church (a traditional African American church) which cooks, packages, and delivers hot meals to 1500 homeless people in the Denver area on Christmas Day.  The church needs and would very much welcome Kohelet's help with this.  This commitment is on Christmas morning, from 8 a.m. til noon or 1 p.m.  It is perfect for families to do together.  If you are interested (or have questions), please email Bennett, parnesb@gmail.com, so that he will have an idea of numbers.

PRESERVING JEWISH HERITAGE IN POLAND

I have come into the possession of a very special book put out by the government of Poland in 2017. It is called  Preserving Jewish Heritage in Poland and is filled with full page photographs and the intention to “commemorate all Jewish communities {in Poland}, even the smallest towns and villages." I plan to leave this book in the Kohelet sanctuary; feel free to borrow it for a while and please return it. As the book notes, “After the expulsion of Jews from Spain, Poland became the world center of Jewish civilization and remained one until the twentieth century” so many of you may have family roots in one of these places in Poland.
