Havdalah with Cafe Kolot!

Saturday, August 19, 8-10pm @ Couleur

Join us for Havdalah* with lefty community, light snacks and a cash bar. 

Cafe Kolot is a new monthly minyan of Kolot Chayeinu, meeting in cafes, music venues and homes. We alternate celebrating Kabbalat Shabbat and Havdalah, all with exuberant song, welcoming community, and our full political selves. Cafe Kolot is led by Student Rabbi Miriam Grossman.

*Havdalah is a short weekly Jewish ritual that ends Shabbat and transitions us out of the world of rest, into the world of creation and action. We celebrate with wine, spices, song and fire.

More than 100 rabbis, including Rabbi Lippmann and student rabbi Miriam Grossman, signed onto a letter calling on Hillel International to unconditionally reinstate B'nai Keshet at Ohio State University.

Hillel expelled the Jewish LGTBQ student group for participating in a Jewish Voice for Peace fundraiser to benefit refugees.
