On May 21, members of Naaleh will be our guests on Shabbat morning for another joint Naaleh-Kohelet service. Please make every effort to attend and to welcome these lovely people, many of whom have attended our services before. Nosson Knobloch and Aviva Pearlman are members of both Naaleh and Kohelet.
Join us! With the extra voices, our ruach/spirit will be very strong and special! Please also consider bringing a favorite dish for our potluck lunch!
A TOUR OF PROVERBS/MISHLEI WITH NEIEL
Better a dry crust with peace Than a house full of feasting with strife. To start a quarrel is to open a sluice; Before a dispute flares up, drop it. A friend is devoted at all times; A brother is born to share adversity. A joyful heart makes for good health; Despondency dries up the bones. The wicked man draws a bribe out of his bosom; To pervert the course of justice. A knowledgable man is sparing with his words; A man of understanding is reticent. Even a fool is deemed wise if he keeps silent; Intelligent if he seals his lips.
CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS
Kohelet will have a table at the Walk for Israel on Sunday May, 22, downtown at the DCPA Sculpture Park. Please let Daniel Hettleman, firstname.lastname@example.org, know as soon as possible whether you can take a 30-60 minute shift at the table, some time between 10:30 and 2:00. You can be there to answer questions about Kohelet, interact with people in the community, represent Kohelet in a friendly manner, and hand out Kohelet pens. Thanks!
