Of course you don’t know your schedule next fall or even next summer. To overcome this problem, Kohelet is instituting a three-times a year Shabbat sign up process, beginning at our annual meeting on January 31.
Sign up at the annual meeting for February – May: two times per person set-up/clean-up
Sign up in May for June-August: one time per person set-up/clean up
Sign up in August for September-January: two times per person set-up/clean up
Annual meeting sign ups will be hard copy. After the annual meeting you can sign up online or by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
At the annual meeting you can also sign up for committees as well as d’vrei Torah, laining Torah, and leading services.
Kohelet Talks: A major thank you to Deanne and Sari for a great presentation on Ethical Wills at the last Kohelet Talk. The large group had interesting discussions and learned a lot about this intriguing subject. Please save the date Thursday, March 10th for the next intriguing Kohelet Talk.
Members, We will begin a tour of Proverbs - Mishlei.
There are 31 chapters and each week I will extract several verses to consider. - Neiel
Proverbs 2 ( from Solomon to his son) Accept my words and treasure my commandments. Be attentive to wisdom and open to clarification. Call out to understanding and discipline. Seek it as you do silver and your search for treasure. You will then attain knowledge of G-d.
