Kol Ami has an exciting selection of activities, programs and groups to meet all sorts of interests and help create connections and Jewish life for families, couples and singles. From the youngest to the oldest we offer opportunities to learn, meet, sing and help repair our world.
We are also a very caring community. Our goal is to help celebrate and acknowledge the happy occasions that happen in the lives of our members and to offer support during times of sadness, illness, and stress. Please contact the Temple office, Rabbi Tom, Rabbi Shira or Cantor Mo if you or someone you know is need of the support of our congregation. We also love to hear good news so let us know of a happy event occurring in your family so we can put in in This Week At Kol Ami!
Mishaberah list/ Prayer for Healing: If you would like your name, the name of a family member or friend read during the prayer of healing during the Shabbat Evening service please notify the Temple office..
Hospital Visitation: Our Rabbis are happy to visit you in the hospital or call on you if you are ill but we need to hear that news from you or a family member in order to not violate your privacy. Due to privacy laws now enacted by health care providers, clergy are not notified of the hospitalization of a congregant unless you specifically request that your clergy person be notified. So please tell the Rabbis or Temple office of a hospitalization so we can provide support to you during a difficult time.
Yahrtzeit List/ Memorial Prayer: Names of loved ones are read prior to the Kaddish prayer on Friday evening to remember their passing. If you let the office or Rabbis know who you would like remembered, their name can be added to the list and will be read every year on the Hebrew Calendar anniversary and during Yiskor service on Yom Kippur. Non -Jewish relatives’ names may also be read.
We have an amazing group of volunteers who are always willing to reach out to a Temple member in need. More volunteers are always needed. We would love to have you join us in doing these important Mitzvahs. Please contact Ginny Ruder or Ruth Goldberg to see how you can help.
