Israeli Dancing with Don Shillinger

  • February 8th, 2020
  • 10:00am-12 noon    

Dancing in a community setting is a traditional way for people of the Tribe to celebrate together. And what a great way to enjoy friends old and new. Please come to this family event to joyously celebrate Shabbat. Many people may have already experienced the masterful teaching of Don Shillinger who is not new to the Lehigh Valley.

Shabbat Poetry Writing Workshop with Audrey Nolte 

  • March 14th, 2020
  • 10:00am-11:30am  

According to Psalms, “There is a future for one who finds peace and wholeness.” We find poetry in nature, prayers,

music and literature. In preparation for National Poetry Month, National

Writing Project Fellow Audrey Nolte will guide participants through a writing experience that emphasizes the senses, blends personal vision and inspires us

to take Shabbat out of the box. Bring a notebook, a favorite pen, and an open mind. Feel free to bring personal poems, prayers, psalms pictures and memories for inspiration.

Pesach Matzo Pot Luck and Havdalah

Please join us and bring your favorite prepared food that includes matzo, matzo meal or other Kosher for Pesach recipes to share for our first ever Pesach Matzo Pot Luck. Appetizers, entrees, salads and desserts are welcome. Dinner includes beverages and a dose of Metamucil! The evening concludes with a Havdalah service.

Bicycling, Running or Walking with  Marty Katz   

Upper Saucon Township Community Park- 3231 Preston Ln., Bethlehem PA

  • May 9th, 2020
  • 9:30am-11:30am 
  • Pot luck lunch at 12 noon

Honoring nature is one of the ways many people engage in the Shabbat spirit. We will experience Shabbat and get closer

to nature, by mixing Shabbat reflections with traveling the beautiful Saucon Valley Rail Trail. The activities and levels (bike, run, walk) will be determined by the preferences of those who register.

We will gather at 9:30 a.m. at the Upper Saucon Park pavilion with readings to help us tune into nature and Shabbat.

We will split into groups for our preferred activities and finish our activity with more readings. There will be an option for a potluck lunch for those who wish to stay and break bread together. The event is weather dependent. Notice will be posted on the KI website if it is necessary to cancel.
