WHAT I LEARNED FROM THE BAR/BAT MITZVAH PROCESS:
A panel of kids and parents. Coordinator: Aviva Siegel.
The next and vibrant KoheletTalk will be on Thursday, March 10, 2016. Please come to show your support as three of our recent Bar/Bat Mitzvahs will share their perspectives as new Jewish adults in our community. The panel of kids and parents will address what each pair has learned through the process of planning and executing their simcha.
Prospective Bar/Bat Mitzvah families, within and outside Kohelet, can gain insights and ask questions. Teacher-trainers can add in about the process of helping those interested begin their journey in Jewish adulthood. New ideas and everyone’s input about the challenges and benefits of this milestone process of Judaism will be welcomed.
Please join us and invite friends and colleagues who might be considering a Bar/Bat Mitzvah in the future, who have had one in the past, or are simply interested in this traditional yet still unique experience that is an important part of Judaism and of Kohelet.
A casual supper will be available at 6:00 pm, and the program will start promptly at 6:45 pm. Please RSVP to: email@example.com.
Bring us a question!
We love prepared, researched talks on the weekly parsha.
But we also thrive when someone brings a question related to the parsha that we can discuss. The following days are available for someone to lead a Torah discussion based on a question. Click hereto sign up.
In the dusk of evening, in the dark hours of night,
A woman comes with set purpose.
He is swayed with her eloquence,
And is turned aside with talk.
Thoughtlessly following like an ox going to slaughter.
Like a fool to the stocks for punishment.
Do not stray for numerous are her victims.
