Things look a little bit different? Our Kol Shalom web site has transitioned from URJ’s Web Builder 2.0 to a new WordPress-based Web Builder 3.0 technology and undergoing some reconstruction. We hope you’ll be patient as we continue to update and improve our web site content.

Tu BiSh’vat Tikkun (Seder) Sunday, January 20 7:00 p.m.

Come join the Kol Shalom community for a traditional tikkun (seder) led by Rabbi Paul and Cantorial Soloist Laura Sunday evening, January  20, from 7:00-9:00 p.m., as we celebrate Tu BiSh’vat, the Jewish New Year of the Trees. We will celebrate again this year with “fruits of the trees” and “fruits of the vine” and a minimum of 4 glasses of wine each (for the adults)! 

It is traditional to have several different food items for a Tu BiSh’vat Tikkun (whether at your own home or at our CKS member event). Many of the fruits have an important significance that you will learn about at the tikkun.

There is no charge for this event. For attendees, we’re assigning suggested foods to bring based on the first letter of your last name (same as last year, please see your upcoming evite in January).

Upcoming Adult Education

Adult Education Year-Long Class on how to be a Shliach Tzibur – one who leads services)
(Two Sundays a month, Nov-May, 1-3 p.m.)
Great Jewish Thinkers Vol 4: Nachmanides
January 10 and 17, 2019. Thursdays from 7-9 p.m.
Ramban or Rambam. It gets confusing, but considering the fact that the two had conflicting views, it is probably good to get a handle on at least one of them. Moses ben Nachman, Nachmanides or Ramban was a medieval commentator and kabbalist whose views are considered among the most important in studying Torah and Talmud.
We will look at his life, influence and works, trying to gain an appreciation for this under-studied force in our tradition.
