The Hebrew month of Av contains two contrasting holidays: Tisha B’Av- a day that observes the destruction of the temples and many other horrible days in the history of Judaism, and Tu B’Av- a day that celebrates love. This Kabbalat Shabbat will incorporate elements of both as we stand on a precipice between Agony and Ecstasy and welcome Shabbat together, with Herb Cooper-Levy leading. The service will be in the chapel. As always, please bring desserts to share for the potluck oneg following the service.
Please join Rabbi Leila Gal Berner and the Kol Ami community for a warm Kol Ami Shabbat Service at 10 a.m. We encourage participants to bring dishes to share for the potluck oneg following the service.

The Saturday night before the beginning of Rosh Hashanah is called "Selichot," or "forgiveness." It is a time to continue to prepare emotionally and spiritually for the Yamim Nora'im -- the Days of Awe or the "High Holy Days" that traditionally begins in the month of Elul. For many of us, forgiving and being forgiven is one of the great challenges of life -- this is a time to focus especially on this challenge.
Join together with our community on Saturday evening, September 20th, at 8:00 p.m. Rabbi Leila Gal Berner will lead us in a service and an opportunity to reflect on the challenge of forgiveness.
The Service will be followed by a dessert oneg, so please bring a dessert to share.
Come join us for the first of the High Holy Day services. You'll enjoy a spiritually-rich and ruach-filled service led by Kol Ami's Rabbi Leila Gal Berner in the Fellowship Hall. Visitors are welcome.
