ROSH SEDER

All children 5 years old and older are invited to a special Rosh ha Shanah Day 1 morning program. We will begin a sort of Rosh Seder Oct. 3rd, at 10:15 am in the upstairs Teen Lounge, and conclude about 11:00 am. No fee and no need to bring anything, but I would definitely appreciate your telling me how many in your family to expect. Since Oct. 3 is just around the (Jewish) corner, I would appreciate your RSVP asap, Joan B. Email to: joanyaffa@gmail.com

SUCCOT

On Sunday Oct 16th at 10:30 a.m. we will once again put up the Kohelet Succah.

All members and children are invited to attend what has always been a fun and lively (and sometimes spatially challenging) construction effort.
Children are encouraged to bring items (gourds etc) to help decorate our Succah
Coffee and donuts provided. Be there with gloves and strong back and a good disposition.
Please bring schach (best are evergreen branches).
On the following Wednesday Oct 19th at 6 pm, we will have our traditional Kohelet ceremony-potluck in the succah. All invited.
Please participate,
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.

REQUEST FROM IO LOECHELL

Io Loechell is seeking a few people who would like to participate in a short (5-10 min) Kirtan sequence at her Bat Mitzvah Nov.19. This would consist of chanting and percussion instruments. We would have a rehearsal some time beforehand, but it would be informal and can even be done from your seats. If you want to volunteer an instrument (no strings or wind), that would be great, even if you don’t wish to participate. Please email Io at ioloechell@gmail.com.
