Kolot Chayeinu / Voices of Our Lives

We are a Jewish congregation in Brooklyn, where doubt can be an act of faith and all hands are needed to build our community.


Saturday 8/30: Labor Day Shabbat in Prospect Park 

The "tallis tree" is straight in from 11th Street and Prospect Park West entrance and across the park road. The tree is near the ballparks, which are under renovation, and slightly north of the horse corral/ring. Bring something to sit on. If heavy rain, we meet at Gethsemane.
