What An Exciting Future For Kol Rinah

Nearly four years ago, Susan and I became members of Kol Rinah. And we are forever thankful. Many shuls claim to be warm and welcoming; Kol Rinah folks were truly warm and welcoming. We were strangers but not for very long.

WHAT’S AHEAD?

March 3 – Men’s Club Shabbat

March 4 – Man and Youth of the Year Awards Luncheon

Men’s Club Presents
Come bind our generations together as
a community with our kids and grand-kids, whether it’s your first time or knot.

Bring your own Tefillin (if you have it).
We’ll have extra sets of Tefillin if you don’t have your own.

FUN EVENTS FOR ALL

Announcing: The Men’s Club 2018 Man of The Year is Steve Keyser

Please congratulate Steve and join him March 4, for the Man and Youth of the Year Awards Luncheon where Steve will be honored. More details to come.

FOR DADS AND THE KIDS 

The Dad & Me Bowling Party in November showed that you don’t need to be Dick Weber, Don Carter or Jeffrey “The Dude” Lebowski to be an outstanding bowler. Check out the photos from that event.

FOR THE CONGREGATION

Night in Casablanca, also in November, was a hit. Following the screening of Casablanca (its 75th anniversary happened to be the same night), 81 guests enjoyed authentic Jewish Moroccan cuisine. Sherri Sadon and a crew of five under the direction and labor of Amy Friedman prepared the delicious food. Eli Sadon and Mali Haberer gave presentations regarding Jews in Morocco. From all the positive feedback, we can say everyone left entertained, enlightened and full. Following the movie, dinner and presentations, we screened the Marx Brothers A Night in Casablanca.

FOR THE GUYS

In December, Men’s Club held a Hearing Men’s Voices Night Out. As a preview of Hanukkah, the men were treated to latkes with sour cream and applesauce and snacks. The guys then played card games and Dreidel.

WHAT’S AHEAD?

January 21 – A traditional Hearing Men’s Voices

January 28 -Build-a-Pair (of Tefillin) for the KRRS

January 30 – (Tentative) Tu’Bishvat Seder

February 4 – World Wide Wrap

February 17 – Kol Rinah Trivia Night

March 3 – Men’s Club Shabbat

March 4 – Man and Youth of the Year Awards Luncheon

There are many pictures to enjoy in this issue; so, I’ll not take up any more space with copy.

An Invitation To Do Jewish

Men’s Club supports or sponsors more than 12 events each year. We always try to have a Jewish emphasis or twist for most of those events. Our goal is to do Jewish. Perhaps one of the most Jewish things one could do is to be a regular minyan attendee. So, consider the following.

In Numbers 14:27, the word edah (assembly or congregation) is applied to the assembly of 10 spies who returned a negative report on the land of Canaan. In Psalm 82, the same word, edah, is applied to the divine assembly: God stands in the divine edah (assembly); among the divine beings God pronounces judgment.

Therefore, the Rabbis extrapolated that a congregation or assembly is comprised of at least 10 Jews. And an assembly must be present when God is being sanctified. Examples of such sanctification are the recitation of Kaddish (including Mourner’s Kaddish), Kedushah and Barchu — none of which can be recited without a minyan — 10 adult Jews.

By the way, several of our weekday morning services at Kol Rinah, as well as some evening services are struggling to have a minyan, a divine assembly. Will you exercise your power of 10 and help make a divine edah, a divine assembly?

Weekday morning services begin at 7am, except for Sunday and holidays such as Thanksgiving, which begin at 8am. They meet in the chapel and are usually finished within one hour. Following the service, except Sunday mornings, breakfast is available in the Sara Myers Community Room.

Weekday evening services begin at 6pm, except for Saturday, which varies with the end of Shabbat. Evening services also meet in the chapel and usually last 45 minutes or less.

Use the Amherst entrance for minyanim.

It would be wonderful if you would pick one day a week — morning or evening — to become a regular member of a divine assembly — a minyan.
