A Word About Onegs:  Onegs are back, and we need your help! We are asking all members to consider signing up for at least one Shabbat morning to help with set up and clean up. Most weeks it will be very simple - just challah, wine, and some prepackaged snacks. Starting in August, we'll also have one week per month that is a full lunch. For those, we'll also need a bit more help on Saturday morning, as well as someone to go to either Pikesville or Rockville on Friday to get food. Please click here to sign up.  If you have any questions, please contact Rachelle Tannenbaum at retannenbaum@gmail.com.  


The Zentangle Meditative Art class is held via Zoom on Wednesday mornings beginning at 10 AM. No art background needed or required. Please have the following items available: several sheets of copy paper, a no.2 sharpened pencil, a black pen with a fine tip and good ink flow, a Q-tip and a scissors (to cut out our drawing paper). Please e-mail the synagogue office at office@kolshalomannaolis.org with any questions or if you would like the Zoom link.

Talmud Study, Siddur Class, and Torah and Tabloids sessions will resume after the High Holidays.
