    The Song of Songs: A Kol Ami Book Club selection
    Tuesday, Jul 21st 6:30p to 8:00p
    "Oh, give me of the kisses of your mouth, for your love is more delightful than wine." So opens one English translation of a titillating part of the Jewish Bible, Shir ha-Shirim, The Song of Songs, on its face a love poem, but deeper down maybe, the rabbis argue, a story of the Jews' love of God. Given that romance always springs eternal AND we are called to love God in the Sh'ma AND we haven't done a poem in a while, let's dig into this. Choose your favorite translation (or the original Hebrew!) and bring it to discuss with your Kol Ami Book Club buddies! Zoom Link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/95434070927

    Shabbat-Shavuot Evening Service
    Friday, May 29th 6:45p to 7:45p
    A special night of celebration as we celebrate Shavuot-our receiving of Torah at Mt. Sinai, and the gift of Shabbat-a time for connection and rest from the travails of the world. We will begin with worship that encompasses both Shavuot and Shabbat. We will follow our service with a special study session/discussion (will probably begin around 7:30 pm), bringing Torah Study into the contemporary issues we face as Jews. As we are still living in a Zoom world, feel free to have your own Shabbat dinner while we study. Traditionally, we eat a dairy meal to celebrate Shavuot.
