Kol Shalom is celebrating it's Silver 25th Anniversary. And you’re invited! Our quarter century mark is a milestone for all of us, and we are asking all members to participate in the festivities.
We will party with food, drink, music by the Dusty Boys featuring “Dusty” Walt Hellman, and special events. Lagunitas brews it's own beer, so you can enjoy flight tasting or sample by the glass. One flight or one glass of beer or wine will be complimentary, and food as well as other beverages will be provided.
We Welcome All - members, non members and guests to join us as we Celebrate.

The nights are getting longer. Let’s light the shabbat candles together and bask in the warmth of friendship and community at Kol Shalom. The service starts at 7 PM followed by an oneg. If you can, please bring a tasty item for the oneg, when we will munch and schmooze. I hope to see you there.
Bob Liebman from PSU will be returning to Kol Shalom to show a Jewish themed movie, followed by a discussion. You won’t want to miss it; over the years Bob has been a favorite presenter and discussion leader at Kol Shalom. The movie will have a social justice theme, which will be so appropriate since the following day is Human Rights Day.
After the serious holidays of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur comes the joyful celebration of the fall harvest of Sukkot. It is traditional to build the sukkah, a small hut with openings to the sky, and fill it with fall flowers, fruit and vegetables. It is also traditional to invite ushpizin which is Aramaic for guests. You may invite historical figures or other important people you admire in order to honor them and appreciate their contributions. Of course, you may invite your real and tangible friends and family to share in the fall bounty.
You are invited to the Humanistic Judaism Study Group to watch the humorous efforts of a couple who are doing their best to honor the traditions of Sukkot. What could go wrong? Please join us to learn how this couple rises to the challenge of remaining true to the joyful traditions of Sukkot.
There is no registration and no fee.
We look forward to your participation!
