Kol Ami — The Northern Virginia Reconstructionist Community

Shabbat morning service led by Jim North and Richard Ruth

August 29, 2020, 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

A new school year is about to launch, and, a few weeks later, a new Jewish year, full of promise and possibilities.  So please come join your Kol Ami community for a festive late summer Shabbat!  Some highlights to anticipate:

–          Blowing the shofar!  It is traditional to blow and hear the shofar each morning during the Jewish month of Elul, leading up to Rosh ha-Shanah.  So if you have a shofar at home, and especially if you attended Rabbi Gilah’s shofar blowing workshop and you’ve been practicing, please bring your shofar and prepare to make a joyful noise.

–          Blessings for teachers and students!  If you’re heading into a new academic year, as a student or a teacher at any level, preschool to graduate/professional school, come receive your community’s blessings for a successful year.  And JCEP and Pizza and Talmud participants – this includes you.

–          Prayers, music, Torah study, and special prayers for those in need of healing.  In other words – everything that makes a Kol Ami Shabbat special.

Don’t have a Kol Haneshama Shabbat siddur (prayer book) at home?  Everything you need – Hebrew, transliteration, English – will be screen-shared.

Richard Ruth will be leading the prayers and Torah study and Jim North will be leading the music.  See you there!

Our Zoom services are open to the broader community. To register, please email .
