Latest News & Events for Families at Kol Rinah
Kol Rinah Young Families are looking forward to some warmer-weather events (and just some warmer weather!). Our annual Shavuot Picnic is Sunday May 20 at Mooney Park, and we are looking forward to the summer Erev Shabbat Picnics in the Park, a wonderful way for families to welcome Shabbat together.
We had a joyous time at our mock seder the Shabbat before Passover dancing, singing, eating, learning, and acting our way through the seder and Passover story! And we are busy putting together our calendar for the 2018-2019 school year with programs and activities for kids of all ages. Please be in touch with Tammy at email@example.com with any questions!

Building Inclusive Community
I am so excited to be filling the role of Family Programming Coordinator, on an interim volunteer basis. I am honored to continue to build on the tradition of strong family programming at Kol Rinah, and I am thrilled that a growing number of families are choosing Kol Rinah as their spiritual community. Currently, I am focusing on developing and coordinating social and educational events for parents and families. (And I am very excited that Rabbi Jessica Shafrin will be offering another series of spiritual parenting discussion groups starting January 13!) I continue to lead Tot Shabbat monthly, and you are always welcome to come join the fun! I have incredible partners in my work — Rabbi Arnow and Rabbi Shafrin, the ECC co-directors, and of course the parents themselves. I am developing a Leadership Team of parents who will help guide the direction and priorities of our programming. In addition, I hope to work with families and the broader Kol Rinah community to explore new avenues for social action engagement. Please be in touch with your thoughts and ideas — you can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
