KOHELET SUCCAH CONSTRUCTION

Please join us at Kohelet on Sunday Oct 16th at 10:30 to help put up the Kohelet Succah.
Adults and children all welcome. Should take one hour. Work gloves optional Bring schach.
Coffee and Donuts provided.

KOHELET IN THE SUCCAH
Please come to Kohelet on Wed Oct 19th at 6 pm for pot-luck in the Succah. I’ll bring the wine.
You bring the food. We will shake the lulav and have a brief service.
Thank you,
Neiel

SUCCAH HOP

There are many special things to happen before the beginning of Succot, but it is never too early to start thinking about “this time of our joy.” As Dr. Seuss wrote: So build a Succah one and all, make it large or make it small. Succah rules are short and snappy, enjoy Succot, rejoice be happy.” As in past years, there will be a sukkah at Kohelet for all to use at any time during the days and evenings of Succot. Alternatively or in addition, many Kohelet people choose to put up their own succah. In either case, we would like to encourage inviting Kohelet guests to share this wonderful experience with you. Please email to Joan B. if you would like to be invited to a succah dinner, lunch, or tea or be a host at your home or both. Let me know the dates of your availability during Oct. 16-21., and I will make a roster of hosts and guests and dates. You can start sending your info. now and until Oct. 10th to me at joanyaffa@gmail.com.

SIMCHAT TORAH: REJOICING WITH THE TORAH

Monday, October 24
6:00 p.m. pizza and dessert (and some alcohol as required by tradition)
7:00 p.m. children’s parade and celebration
Please join us in the meaningful activity of watching the entire Torah rolling in front of us. Then live music, singing, and dancing.
Bring a dessert to share and $5 for an individual, $10 for a couple, and $15 for a family to pay for the pizza. RSVP to cohenjudithx@gmail.com.

FEELING SAD?

Are you disappointed that Hannah Kapnik Ashar did not lead any of the High Holiday services this year? Do not despair. Hannah will be showing up intermittently this year to lead Shabbat services at Kohelet. The first will be on October 22. Don’t miss Hannah’s spirited and spiritual davening.

RETREAT NOVEMBER 6

The Kohelet retreat is approaching fast. Snow Mountain Ranch offers numerous fun activities for adults and children including an extensive craft shop, swimming, roller skating, climbing wall, basketball, zipline, and short hikes. Many of these activities are free and others require a fee. It should be a great weekend for all of us.

KEVAH

Kevah is rolling out in Denver this fall with educational opportunities for groups that wish to engage. The Kohelet Board has agreed that education opportunities presented to us should be explored. Julie Lieber, representing Kevah has made her presentation before the Board and also came to Kohelet on Shabbat Sept 24th and offered a brief presentation to our members.

Essentially, a group would be formed with a minimum of 8 people which would choose a topic for the Kevah leader-teacher to pursue. Kevah already has many qualified teachers in Denver ready to begin teaching a variety of Judaica subjects. Kevah does all of the organizing and collection of fees for this program. At this time the cost is $360pp/year for monthly sessions. Reductions in fees are possible if requested. If you are interested in hosting or joining a group already forming please contact Julie who is coordinating Kevah in Colorado at jlieber@kevah.org and look at www.kevah.org for further information.
