Yom Shishi, 8 AdarI 5775

Dear Members and Friends of the Kol Chadash Congregational Family,

Shabbat Shalom.  

DUE TO THE EXTREME COLD AND THE WARNINGS FROM THE WEATHER SERVICE TO STAY INSIDE THIS EVENING, WE ARE CANCELLING SERVICES FOR TONIGHT, FRIDAY FEBRUARY 20.  STAY WARM AND SAFE!  (and perhaps use the time to fill out and mail your mishloach manot form to Kol Chadash! See below)

The Jewish holiday of Purim is quickly approaching.  As is the tradition of our congregation, we will once again be assembling Mishloach Manot boxes and delivering them to all the members of our community. Click here for the form and return it to PO Box 39161 with $36 to participate or email Jon Rosenberg at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to let him know you wish to participate and you will be invoiced.  The deadline is February 27th. 

Also we are in need of donations of non-perishable individually wrapped food items such as raisins, granola bars, candy to use to fill the boxes.  Please drop off any donations prior to the beginning of March. 

We welcome back to Cleveland Jacob and Adam Rogers who represented Kol Chadash and NFTY NEL at last week's NFTY National Convention in Atlanta.    We look forward to hearing about the experience.
