The Washington Post said Never Look Away is one of the best - and most beautiful films out now.“ This movie, loosely based on the life and early career of the German artist Gerhard Richter, is “a meditation on art, memory, and meaning . . . a deep-dive into the postwar psyche of the filmmaker’s native Germany.” The movie begins in 1937 and spans 30 years. It has been called a sweeping, romantic historical drama.
Welcome to another wonderful weekend at KSS! From dinner at the Rabbi's house, to services and Torah school, to Rosh Chodesh and our exploration of Dinah, there's something for everyone!
And Mazel Tov to Bev on her daughter's wedding!
Rosh Chodesh Kislev – 11.24 at 9:30 am – at KSS
In the month of Kislev we read the story of Dinah, the only daughter of Jacob and sister to 12 brothers who became the tribes. We are told that she “went out to visit the daughters of the land” – with tragic consequences for all.
We will explore the text, the risks and benefits of leaving our comfort zones, and learn self-defense with Yael Grazier-Zerbarini.

Welcome to another weekend at Kehillath Shalom Synagogue. Sadly, all the events that were planned for inside the Sukkah will have to be held in the shul. The winds got the better of us. Many thanks to the brave bunch who braved the poison ivy and uneven footing to rescue the sukkah and put it away for the season.
But we still have lots to choose from this weekend!
Friday, October 18th at the shul at 6:30 - Pizza will be close to the hut...but there's still pizza to be had and Sukkot to be celebrated!
Saturday, October 19th is Soulful Shabbat beginning at 10am
Bagels and Books - Sunday, October 20th
The High Holidays are here!
Somehow, they always feel like they sneak up on me. It's like, I know they're coming. I do all the things to prepare, but then still they surprise me when they actually arrive! But here we are! Let's begin! Shanah Tovah, friends!
Your Web Mistress,
Torah Study begins at 10am with services to follow at 11:15

Rabbi's Message About Sunday's Rosh HaShanah Foods Workshop
Are you ready for the seder? No?
Did you know there is a tradition of a seder on Rosh HaShanah?
If, like most members of Kehillath Shalom, you are of Ashkenazic descent, you may be familiar with adding a blessing over apples dipped in honey on Rosh HaShanah so that we might have a sweet year. Jews with roots in Spain have a tradition that expands this practice to many foods that symbolize many blessings. These are called simanim, or omens. And they are eaten in an order (seder) on Rosh HaShanah evening.
Beyond food, tradition (superstition?) suggests that what we do on Rosh HaShanah will have an impact on the year. For example, there's a tradition not to nap on the holiday so that we do not sleep the year away. Perhaps you might like to think about what you would like more of in the coming year and do it (even symbolically) on Rosh HaShanah. We talk a lot about reflection and changes we might make at this time of year: let's get to it! Go for that walk in the woods, call that person you've been meaning to reconnect with, take a bit of time with your friend/spouse/parent/kid, write your elected representative. Make your wishes reality.
And if you want to know more about food omens, come to Sunday's culinary workshop!
Rabbi Lina Zerbarini
