KE’s Virtual Week: March 22-28


Shavuah Tov! 
We are excited to share with you the first of our weekly emails detailing everything available to you at Kol Emeth this virtual week. Each Sunday, we will be providing you with the schedule and links to all kinds of spiritual, educational, and social programs geared for all ages. All services (including Shabbat) are listed with links as well. 
In addition to the weekly schedule, you will find descriptions of everything! There are lots of continuing classes that welcome newcomers, as well as some brand new offerings. Each week, be on the lookout for additional classes and one time opportunities as well. 
Please note that all of these events will be using the Zoom platform. If you have not already downloaded Zoom Client for Meetings onto your computer, it will be best to do so before joining these groups. If you need assistance, please see the Kol Emeth website or contact Tamika to be connected with one of our amazing KE Tech Support Volunteers. We’ll have tech support volunteers available today to help you set up Zoom from 5:00 to 7:00pm, and are happy to help with additional questions that may arise.
This is an important time to stay connected as a community, and KE is here for you and your family. If you need anything at all, please don’t hesitate to reach out. I’m looking forward to “seeing” all of you this week!

for dialogue at our seders this year. If possible, each participant should bring a copy
of the Haggada to the session. Everything studied will be in English translation.
