  • In the past few weeks, you may have seen shul greeters standing by the doors and roving inside.  Greeters are the eyes and ears of the shul, providing a welcome to newcomers and a watchful eye as well. We are now opening up greeting roles to our entire community and we need your help! Time slots are only 30 minutes. So sign up for this Shabbat and the coming weeks! Note the tabs at the bottom of the sheet for the next three Shabbatot. Please contact Bob Rubin with any questions.
  • Nigel Savage, founder and CEO of Hazon, will be visiting over Shabbat, Dec 7-8. He will speak briefly during davening and again after kiddush. See http://hazon.org/chicagoshabbat for more info.
     
  • We've gone back in time and the Maccabees need your kids' help to reclaim our Temple! Kids between the ages of 5-12 are invited to join us on Dec. 8th at 6:00p for a series of exciting and age appropriate quests throughout the building, culminating in a candle lighting for all. Adults and kids under 5 are invited to tag along on the quests or to hang out in the social with nosh and drink until dinner is served at 6:30. Click on the flyer to register! We also need volunteers to help us set up and facilitate the quests - we are looking for 20 adults help set up and then to be stationed throughout the building playing different roles. Contact Zahava if you are available.

  • The Green Team is bringing a new initiative to Skokie Valley and Kol Sasson as we take another step toward greening the shul. Beginning Shabbat November 3, we plan to begin composting our food waste and disposable utensils. Doing so will help us divert thousands of pounds of waste from landfills and create rich fertilizer to further green our village. Read more >>
