It’s going to be all-out knowledge warfare to establish (in an extremely silly and non-competitive environment) the trivia champion of the Kehillah parents and guardians! Prove to your kids that you DO know it all. Join us for this fun way to see some people, test your wits, and learn a thing or two 🙂
It’s here!! There are some amazing new pieces, including a facemask, class t-shirts in the class color, Trivia Tuesday stickers, and more! Be sure to check out our online store – which now allows for your orders to be shipped directly to your home!
Order your apparel before the store closes on November 16!
Fundraising money goes to the Kehillah Student Government.
Students from Dr. Benjamin‘s Yiddish Literature will be presenting their adaptation and performance of S. Ansky’s play The Dybbuk: Between Two Worlds.
The play is a mystical tale of impossible love, dangerous learning, and demonic possession. This year marks the 100th anniversary of Ansky’s death and The Dybbuk’s premiere.
“Tzadikim” shoutouts from
In Parshat Noach this week, we learn that Noach is righteous, blameless in his generation. The rabbis debate if Noach was the best of a generation about to be wiped from the face of the earth or actually a righteous person who should be admired and revered. For us, in the present, as we so often watch dignity and decency being traded in for hate and deceit, we forget the righteous in our world, let alone the righteous in our own communities.
Kehillah, many of you submitted stories of righteousness in our community this week and it’s our privilege to share them. <<READ MORE>>
Drive for supplies to help the homeless 👐
Please consider bringing food items, socks, masks, toiletries, hand sanitizer, and other basic necessities. There will be a box on campus, where we will be collecting the supplies for a community service project to help the homeless.
The box will remain on campus during Kehillah B’Yachad programs.
Volunteer Opportunity: Access Books
From Kehillah Parent, Linda Forrester:
A local non-profit that increases access to pleasure-read books for children attending schools in low-income Bay Area neighborhoods, is looking for volunteers to build, paint, and install book boxes. Access Books Bay Area’s normal model is to buy brand new books for under-resourced Bay Area k-8 school libraries as well as refresh the space with colorful murals and functional child-sized furniture, but during school closures we are building and stocking book boxes (like Little Free Libraries) for these schools.
We are looking for volunteers to build and paint boxes, a great project for high school students to do in a small socially distanced group or for a family to undertake on a weekend or two. We ask that the person or group building the box provide their own materials and tools and the cost can be tax deductible as we are a 501(c)(3). Students can also earn community service hours that we can sign off on. For more information please contact Linda Forrester.
