Update on Friday Night Services

To Our KI Family,

To help keep our congregants as safe as possible, KI will not hold physical services on Friday March 13th or March 20th - and will decide on future services as our understanding of the corona virus spread develops.

Even when physical gatherings for services are not possible, the reasons we gather for Shabbat can still be fulfilled! 

For March 13th, please consider joining Noah Aronson's onliine service at 7pm:  facebook.com/noaharonsonmusic.  He is calling it a "Quarantine Shabbat" and it should be a really joyful and uplifting alternative.

For March 20th, we are trying to offer our own services online. We will send an update next week. 

KI wants to support our congregants in observing Shabbat.  We will read March 13th yahrtzeits at the next communal service.  We will continue to turn on yahrtzeit memorial lights for those with plaques.  If you would like support for how to celebrate Shabbat or observe yahrzeits at home - or to share ideas for how KI can best serve congregants while not meeting physically, please call the office.  The office has yahrtzeit candles and copies of prayers available. At this point, we are planning on regular office hours, but please call before you come in just to be sure (610 435-9074).

Thank you for your understanding, patience and ideas as we try to balance spiritual and communal needs, along with the need to keep us all safe.
