Shabbat Inspiration, Worship Schedule, and LifeCycle Notices
Thursday, July 14, 2022 / 15 Tammuz, 5782
Having lived on both coasts, the Pacific Northwest, and the Midwest, I have experienced weather of all types. And during this time of year, there is no better place to be than Chicago. Aside from a little rainy thunder here and there, the weather is mild, the sun is out, and the birds are chirping. So, what better time is there to celebrate Shabbat outside than this weekend!

Starting at 9:00 am on Saturday at Lovelace Park in Evanston, Rabbi London and I will host a brief Tot Shabbat service with Kathy Kaberon. Bring your family and young ones as we sing and pray. There's a playground nearby where you can get out some energy afterwards. And for those looking for a more traditional service, Shabbat Morning Services will also be held at the park starting at 9:30 am. Don't forget to bring a hat, sunglasses, refillable water bottle, along with a side, dessert or salad to share at the lunch to follow! And if you also want to use the playground after services, that's cool too, but I call dibs on the slide immediately following services.

I hope to see you there with some family and friends as we observe the Sabbath, experience the beautiful outdoors, and increase our Vitamin D!

Shabbat Shalom,
Cantor Kyle Cotler
