Camp-Style Family Shabbat led by KEFTY

Friday, February 10: optional dinner at 6:00, Shabbat service at 7:00

The teens from KEFTY (our high school youth group) have created a fun and engaging Shabbat service for the entire congregation. As they lead us in prayer and song, they will share their thoughts and teach us a bit about about the prayers. Don’t miss this opportunity to kvell over our teens! To RSVP for Shabbat dinner, please click the button below by Tuesday, February 7 at noon.

Mindfulness and Judaism

The 5-session series begins Sunday, January 22 at 9:00 a.m.

Join Rabbi Sernovitz on Sunday mornings for the next series from the Center for Jewish Life and Learning: Mindfulness and Judaism. This course will explore the practice of mindfulness in Jewish sources and thought. It will consider mindfulness as a path of emotional healing, spiritual awareness and liberation from suffering and its role in leading a full and fulfilling Jewish life. Concrete techniques will accompany many of the practices, and participants are encouraged to engage on a practical as well as intellectual level. Texts and questions will address emotional, psychological and intellectual issues, and participants are encouraged to approach the course with intellectual and emotional openness and a willingness to share and experiment.

Be a Mensch, and Help Us Build a Bench!
 

We are building a bench in the lobby to commemorate 40 years of Temple Kol Emeth. This will be a beautiful and functional piece of art that will be a permanent fixture for all to see and use. The 15-foot wooden bench will have transparent cubbies artistically arranged along the back where you may choose to engrave your family's name. Much like at the Western Wall, you have the opportunity to submit memories and wishes to be permanently encased inside the bench. The bench will be presented to the congregation in April 2023 in conjunction with the Ruby Jubilee. To learn more, and reserve your spot, click the button below.

We are Looking for a Few Good Men ... and Women!
 

If you love TKE and have talent and ideas for helping grow TKE, consider becoming more involved by joining the TKE Board of Trustees for 2023-2024.  You will play a significant role in making our “Painted Picture” of 2025 a reality!  

Beginning in February, the Nominating Committee will interview members in good standing who believe that they would be the right person to serve on the Board of Trustees for the term that begins on July 1, 2023, and ends on June 30, 2024.  Please review the roles and responsibilities of each of our board positions HERE to determine which position is right for you.  

Service to one's community is an incredibly important mitzvah.  If you are interested in serving your congregation and your Jewish community, the Nominating Committee wants to hear from you. Please let us know of your interest by February 19, 2023, so that we have time to speak with everyone. 

If you have questions, please email Dr. Richard Brenner, Chair of the Nominating Committee.

Yes, I'm interested in serving on the TKE Board of Trustees!
