BEIT T'FILLAH – A House of Prayer
Among other qualities, CKA is a spiritual sanctuary – welcoming us for celebrations, consoling us at times of sadness, and asking us to pause and reflect on the meaningful moments that Shabbat and the holidays can bring. We welcome and encourage those who wish to explore Judaism.
Shabbat services take place most Friday evenings at 7:30 pm, while Saturday morning Torah services are typically held concurrently with B’nai Mitzvah celebrations. Services are participatory and filled with stirring song, heartfelt prayer, and astute commentary. After services, Onegs include delicious treats and beverages over which lifelong friendships have been forged.
Services balance prayer in both traditional Hebrew and English. The musical melodies that enhance our prayer range from the traditional to the modern. Rabbi Kinberg’s sermon topics are wide-ranging and thought-provoking.
PRAYER & MUSIC LEADERS
Lay participation in many aspects of our services is often a special treat and Congregation Kol Ami depends on members of our community to lead the music and chanted prayers during portions of our Shabbat services. If you can chant prayers in Hebrew and lead traditional Shabbat music, with or without accompaniment, Congregation Kol Ami can use your talent!
