The holy days were fantastic this year. Thank you to all who helped make our commemorations and celebrations filled with meaning and life. Now that the holiday season is over we are ready to jump into our season of learning. Religious School is up and going. Torah Study is stronger and larger (people-wise) than ever. And we have two new learning groups starting up this Shabbat.
Our Jewish History Havurah will be an on-goog monthly exploration of Jewish History and Civilization. We will uncover our origins from not just a historical perspective but also sociological and anthropological perspectives. No need to register. Just come to learn and discuss who we are as a people and how we got here. We will meet at 5pm this Shabbat at Kol Ami. Bring a nosh to share!
Source Book: A History of the Jews by Paul Johnson
We are also hosting women's monthly Friendship Circle and Rosh Chodesh group. We are going to take on a book of daily study and then meet monthly to share our reflections and learnings. Our source book for this group is The Jewish Book of Days by Jill Hammer. This Shabbat at 7pm.
We are also starting a havurah for members who want to work to combat racism and bigotry in our society. I will be discussing our dates, times and possible actions in next week's HaKol. Text me if you are interested in being a part of this working group:360-280-5372
Many blessings for a year of learning and growth.
Rabbi Yohanna Kinberg
