Annual Women’s Retreat in the Redwoods

For ten years, Rabbi Sarah Graff and Kol Emeth women from all backgrounds have gathered for a summer weekend at the Land of Medicine Buddha in the Soquel redwoods. There we take a break, sing, study, pray, hike and, most importantly, connect with each other.

Women’s Study Group
Led by Rabbi Sarah Graff
1st and 3rd Thursdays of each month

The Women’s Study Group, a fixture of Kol Emeth for more than 10 years, generally meets on the first and third Thursday of the month, 11:00am-12:30pm.  We began with study of the weekly Torah portion and have expanded to studying other books of the Hebrew Bible.  We also have special holiday-oriented sessions throughout the year.

Come join us in exploring how our forefathers and foremothers were humans struggling with their special places in history, and how their experiences apply to our lives today, here in Palo Alto.  No special skills are required.




Everyone is welcome in our egalitarian Jewish community
