Come join us for Kol Nidre. Kol Ami's Rabbi Leila Gal Berner and rabbinical student Lori Shaller will lead a spiritually-rich and ruach-filled service in the Sanctuary. Registration information is available here.
Meditation Room: Throughout the High Holy Day services at Kol Ami this year, the library will be a quiet, meditative space, in which you are invited to spend time. There will be:
· Yoga mats and pillows for meditative movement
· Intention cards, on which to meditate
· Colored pencils and paper on which to sketch or write your own intentions for the coming year
· Stones and Sharpie markers for writing intentions to bring back to a communal bowl at the Ne’ila service
· A non-toxic, non-mess-making sand-like material with which to sculpt, squish meditatively between your fingers, or in which to trace your fingers.
This will be a quiet space, not meant for conversation, phone calls or child care. It will be another sacred space in which to pray, with or without the prayer book, or in another medium. We hope you’ll take advantage of it.
Come join us for a full day of Yom Kippur observances. Registration information is available here. Visitors are welcome.
There Will Be Services and Programs Throughout the Day:
Yom Kippur Afternoon -- Stay and spend the afternoon continuing to learn among friends:
Kol Ami will hold a Sukkot celebration, including building the Sukkah at the Sklarew home and a short, meaningful service led by Herb Cooper-Levy. Events will culminate with a potluck dessert. For RSVPS or directions contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Please bring the Kol Ami spirit, strong arms, and a dessert to share.
Please join the Kol Amites -- the Kol Ami community's own group of talented and thoughtful musicians -- as they lead us in a musical Shabbat and Simchat Torah service in the Chapel. We encourage participants to bring dairy or vegetarian dishes to share for the oneg across the hall in the Library (rooms 13 and 15) following the service.
This is an opportunity for those new to Kol Ami and those interested in learning more about the congregation to meet some of its leaders, including Rabbi Leila Gal Berner. Of course, there will be food.
