CKA Book Club

The Book Clubbers of Kol Ami have selected the following books for 2023. We invite you to join us on the third Tuesday night of every month for a lively discussion of the “Book of the Month” and of life in general. Please feel free to join us even if you have not read the book or have read only a portion of the current selection. We meet at seven o’ clock in Onegie Hall. Everyone is welcome.

Sincerely yours,

Debbie Kaufman and the Kol Ami Book Clubbers

20s and 30s Chavurah
This is a group to connect young people in lively social setting to develop fellowship and enrich the group members’ Judaism. The Chavurah creates a space for young Jews to meet other local like-minded young Jews to engage in vibrant Jewish life and community.  The group will hold a monthly Shabbat dinner after services and Oneg to celebrate joyously  Shabbat together. They may sing songs, play games, and/or go over a Jewish topic. Game nights will also be held monthly on Sundays. Join us for various board games like Chess, Catan, or DnD. The group is open to anyone from 18-40 as well as any guests invited by a group member. For more information, please contact the CKA office or Neil Ettington, the current group sponsor.
