Rabbinic Transition Events

There will be many opportunities for you to be with others from the Kolot community to sing, eat, reflect, pray, and laugh. Join Rabbi Lippmann and Cantor Segal at one of a series of Kabbalat Shabbat services and farewell dinners; celebrate Kolot's birthday on Tu B'Shevat; mark your calendar for the special Shabbats in June when we will be honoring Rabbi Lippmann.

As we continue to plan for Kolot's next 25 years and beyond, we need your voices! Look for a survey this spring asking for your input on priorities for our next rabbi. Mark your calendars now for our congregational meeting on May 6th, when we will be sharing what we've learned from that survey, as well
as last fall's house meetings. We expect to be able to introduce you to our Interim Rabbi by the end of March, so please stay tuned for that exciting announcement. 
We hope you will reach out to us if you have any questions or suggestions about the events listed below or anything else in the upcoming six months:
