We’ll teach you everything you'll need to know. Please write rabbigutmann@tkolami.org if you are interested.
Save the Date!
While we cannot at this point plan on gathering in person for our annual May fundraising event, our Fundraising Committee is working hard and has exciting news: on Saturday evening, May 22nd, it will be an honor to have nationally known comedian Todd Glass deliver a unique comedy presentation tailored just for TKA! Todd has appeared many times on Jimmy Kimmel Live, The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Tosh.0 (8 episodes), The Daily Show, Conan O’Brien, and Lights Out with David Spade. Suffice it to say, you will “laugh your Glass off!”
We will also have a cash raffle, as well as a silent auction using an app similar to the one we used in conjunction with our Aces Chai event a few years ago, which was very popular with many of you. If there is something special that you would like to contribute to the auction, e-mail committee chairman Jason Gold at vballjmg@aol.com
One thing that makes TKA so special is our sense of community, so let’s plan on spending a wonderful virtual evening together on May 22nd. More details to come…stay tuned!


Temple is offering many opportunities to connect with the holiday. On Purim Night, Thursday, February 25th, the Purim Megillah Challenge presented by our TKA players will offer a fun and entertaining interpretation of the megillah on Facebook and YouTube at 6:45.

Immediately after the megillah on ZOOM, Meeting ID: 965 2058 1727 Passcode: Lchayim we will have an after party and l’chayim (BYOD) followed by a special learning session at 7:30, “Esther and Vashti—A Feminist Look” with Jill Gutmann. 

On Friday, February 26th we will enjoy a special Purim themed Shabbat.

Community Food Pantry
Temple Kol Ami's Social Action Committee has partnered with Hazon (the Jewish Lab for Sustainability), to launch our "Community Food Project." This project offers weekly free food packages to people in need. Food packages will be distributed in the Temple parking lot by appointment using health precautions while protecting the dignity and confidentiality for those who participate.
Although we live in an affluent area, we have neighbors and friends experiencing significant hardship that are often overlook. We don't want anyone to go without, so, please tell anyone that you know who may have food needs to go to tinyurl.com/tkacfp and for their food pick up time.   

We are in need of more volunteers.
If you're interested in volunteering to work a shift on Thursday,
