JOIN US AT THE NEXT YOUNG PROFESSIONALS DINNER

 

Last Friday several Kohelet members joined the Young Professionals for a Kabbalat Shabbat service and a Friday Night dinner. We enjoyed delicious food and a lively discussion. These dinners will happen on a regular basis at Kohelet. If you have never done so, please consider joining us sometimes. Not only will you be welcoming Shabbat is a meaningful way, but you will also be making a vibrant group of young professionals feel welcome in the Kohelet community.

MOVIE NIGHT AT KOHELET
Wed., Sept. 25, 7 p.m.

Please join us for the inauguration of Kohelet movie night.
We will be showing “Ida”, a 2013 Polish film.  (80 minutes)
It has won multiple international  awards including an Oscar for Best Foreign Film and Best Cinematography. 
 
"Anna is about to take her vows as a nun when she learns from her only relative that she is Jewish. Both women embark on a journey to discover their family story.”  “Ida is a vital and cinematic evocation of postwar Poland and an intensely personal tale of moral and spiritual awakening."
