Kol Ami is embarking on a new and exciting learning venture: a virtual Beit Midrash or Study Hall. This program is designed to help Kol Ami members boost their synagogue skills so as to feel more comfortable participating in services. Rabbi Gilah Langner will teach an online class once a month from October thru May on a particular prayer or section of the service. Participants can join for a month at a time. No prior background in prayers or Hebrew needed. Participants will need free Zoom software (easily downloaded from the Internet) and a monitor with a camera, if possible. Students will also be matched with a coach who will conduct 20-minute sessions once a week in between classes (either in person, by phone or by computer).
If you’d like to take part in this program, please complete our survey by Monday, September 24. Note that in order for this program to work, we will need the generous contribution of time from coaches so please let us know if you can help out and your preferences and availability for your sessions with students. At this time, we especially need to hear from people willing to be coaches.
We’ll be in the Chapel.

The discussion will be led by Herb Levy and Allan Kellum (of the UUCA). We’ll read and discuss books about Israel and Palestine. The Kingdom of Olives and Ashes is a book of essays edited by Michael Chabon, offering a glimpse into the human cost of fifty years of Israeli occupation of the West Bank and formerly, of Gaza. For this first session, we’ll discuss the first four stories in the book. This discussion group is jointly sponsored by Kol Ami and the UUCA. We’ll be in the Chapel.
