Please DO NOT respond to requests for financial assistance or gift cards from Rabbi Wohl. He will NEVER ask you directly for gift cards through e-mail. If you receive an e-mail for a monetary solicitation that appears to be from Rabbi Wohl, please look closely at the sender's e-mail address.

Additionally, the synagogue office only uses the two following e-mail addresses: office@kolshalomannapolis.org or kolshalomannapolis@verizon.net.
