Dear Parents and Participants:
Thank you for your interest in Kol Neshama. Summer is approaching and we are gearing up for another great program, IY”H! Due to the terrific response to A Light for Greytowers, we have received many inquiries. Enrollment is limited. Attached please find our summer flyer as well as an application.
For those inquiring about the overnight program, due to last summer’s success we will be having a fully supervised dorm again. The program will include Sunday trips like hiking, the beach, the Santa
Monica Pier or outings with a local family. Weeknight activities will include swim parties, trips to the Grove, performance workshops, dinner and Torah at the Garbose’s, Jewish movie night, laundry and pizza night as well as other innovative activities. Shabbosim will alternate between in with the Madrichot and out with a Kol Neshama family or relatives/friends depending. The overnight experience is jam packed with very limited free time
Just a word about our dress code– Kol Neshama does not have a uniform. The girls may come dressed as they wish as long as their clothing strictly adheres to the rules:
1.. Shirts must cover the collar bones, elbows (long sleeve or long three-quarter) and midriff at all times.
2.. Skirts must cover the knees when sitting and NO SLITS.
3.. The girls must wear knee socks/knee highs or tights at all times. Leggings with bobby socks are okay, but bobby socks alone are not.
For girls who were with us last year, post production has begun on last summer’s films and they look fantastic! Please feel free to call us or email at email@example.com. We look forward to hearing from
With best wishes,
From BnaiDavid.com, Rav Yosef Kanefsky writes his congregants:
This Shabbat afternoon I’ll be sharing my annual Shabbat Hagadol Drasha at 5:30. This is one the two times during the year when we are able to take an idea, develop it fully, and explore its ramifications for the way we live. It is also our opportunity to discover a (hopefully) new religious perspective with which to enter Pesach. This year’s Drasha is entitled:
Ba’avoor Zeh: Because of This
Why is this People Different?
Of course the Shabbat Hagadol drasha isn’t for everyone. It’s only for folks between the ages of 14 and 25 , 26 and 40, and 41 through 97. Attendance will also be limited only to people who do not have children and to those who do. (Childcare provided for those who do.) So if you meet the criteria, I’ll see you on Shabbat!Read More
Last Shabbat the new cantor Nati Baram davenned – and dazzled the congregation with a broad spectrum of talent on display. He showed off his soul and his singing talents : Getting the community to participate in group-sing; the Kedushah included parts of O Sole Mio – and there was a good dose of Carlebach and some fun sprinkled in too.
All in all a recipe for a total mench leading his new community in joyous song. He came into LA for a few days – and hopes are high that the visa issues will be resolved shortly after Pesach.Read More
