SHABBAT SERVICE MAY 28
Torah Reader: Phil Weiser Torah Discussion: Phil Weiser
WHAT TO DO THIS SUMMER
In 2016 we changed our set up-clean up sign up policy so that each member signs up for two days between February and May, one day between June and August, and two days between September and January. It is now time for summer sign up.
PLEASE SIGN UP FOR ONE DAY. A paper signup sheet will be available in the library or you can sign up online by clicking below.
Please also branch out and consider a d’var Torah. A brief summary and a few questions for the congregation to get us going would be completely sufficient.
(You don't need an access code but you will need your email & self-created password. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you run into trouble.)
TOMORROW NIGHT MAY 26TH!
Kohelet's own Leah Savin will be appearing with her a capella choir ALTITUDE at Red Octave Kitchen and Bar, 4900 E. Colfax at 7:00. Details: www.rmchildrenschoir.org
A TOUR OF PROVERBS/MISHLEI WITH NEIEL
The fool does not desire understanding, But only to air his thoughts. It is not right to be partial to the guilty And subvert the innocent in judgment. One who is slack in his work Is a brother to a vandal. Before ruin a man’s heart is proud; Humility goes before honor. A man’s spirit can sustain him through illness; But low spirits - who can bear them? Death and life are in the power of the tongue; Those who love it will eat its fruit. There are companions to keep one company. And there is a friend more devoted than a brother.
Thank you to everyone who made the joint Naaleh-Kohelet Shabbat such a great success, especially Nosson, Aviva P., Dan H., Susan B., Diane, Tom, Bruce, the service leaders, and all who cooked and cleaned up so nicely!
SAVE THE DATE November 4,5,6 For our out of town retreat at Snow Mountain Ranch!
