  • Oct. 26th-27th - Rabbi Ethan Tucker, cofounder of Mechon Hadar and halachic scholar, will be speaking on the topic of Halacha and Morality. We will have a Kabbalah Shabbat davening followed by a communal catered Shabbat dinner. RSVP and prepayment by Oct. 19 is required. R. Tucker will give the dvar on Shabbat morning and offer a Shabbat afternoon shiur as well.

  • As part of this year's education programming on the theme "The Letter and the Spirit," the KS Education Committee is excited to announce our community book discussion selections for 5779. November: Nine Folds Make A Paper Swan by Ruth Gilligan. January: Thoughts from a Unicorn: 100% Black. 100% Jewish. 0% Safe by MaNishtana. March: Voice Lessons for Parents by Wendy Mogel. May: Letters to My Palestinian Neighbor by Yossi Klein Halevi. The whole community is invited -- nay, encouraged! -- to come together around these books and the conversations they ignite about inclusion, citizenship, spirituality, activism, and more! We will email out the times and dates of organized community discussions for each of these books... but we welcome even those who aren't able to attend events for a book of interest to read it along with the community during that month, and start your own conversations over kiddush! Be on the lookout for an announcement of the first discussion group, and for a survey asking about scheduling those groups going forward!
  • As our youth department grows we want to keep you all informed about all the exciting goings on! Please see this newsletter with a special message from Zahava, our new youth director, our plans for the chagim and ways you can get involved.
