 SHABBAT ALTERNATIVES

  • JUST COMMENTARY: A SHABBAT MORNING STUDY SESSION – 10:30 A.M. -11:30 A.M.  – Next upcoming session: January 21, 2017

Once a month, join us to look more deeply into the texts that anchor our Shabbat service – the Siddur and the Torah portion. This session is just learning, there will be no prayer service.

  • ON ONE FOOT: A SHORT SHABBAT SERVICE FEATURING JUST THE GREATEST HITS 

Once a month, this clergy-led parallel service will offer a condensed version of the Shabbat morning tefillot, including a brief discussion of the weekly Torah portion and a Shabbos Vort (short sermonette).

A SINCERE THANK YOU TO ALL WHO HAVE SUPPORTED US….

Since last week’s well publicized anti-Semitic hateful graffiti attacks on religious institutions including Kehillat Beth Israel, we have received numerous letters, emails, and hand written cards from Ottawans who denounced the hate crimes and offered their support.  KBI is truly humbled by all of the tremendous outpouring of solidarity – the Ottawa community at large – has shown us. We are so grateful and thankful to all those who have come forward on behalf of our membership and community.

THANK YOU TO ALL OUR VOLUNTEERS!

TO ALL THOSE WHO HELP ON A WEEKLY BASIS – RAV TODOT!

We are so appreciative of our lay leaders, helpers & volunteers. For those who wish to join and help out – There are many ways of volunteering your time ~ See KBI Volunteer Opportunities >
