  • Friends -

    This morning, I learned of active Covid-19 cases in the Skokie area, including a person who works in the Wi-Fi Building. While communal davening is a central part of our lives, ensuring the health and safety of our community, and the community at large, takes precedence. Though procedures and guidelines have previously been put into place which would, in other circumstances, have enabled us to continue to daven as a community, now that the virus has been actively detected in our area, we need to take a different path. Therefore, in light of this new information, and in our commitment to join with the Skokie community in efforts to slow the spread of Covid-19, I am saddened to announce that there will not be davening at Kol Sasson this Shabbat. The Skokie Valley building will be closed as well. For some of us, it is the first time in a very long time that we will not be able to daven on a Shabbat morning with our beloved community, and for others, it is a shorter period of time, but in all cases, it is still painful, and I would encourage everyone to find alternate means of connecting with each other. At this time, I do not know when our communal davening will resume; we will continue to monitor the situation, and will provide updates as soon as they are available.

    May we all have a healthy and peaceful Shabbat.


  • The Green Team is bringing a new initiative to Skokie Valley and Kol Sasson as we take another step toward greening the shul. Beginning Shabbat November 3, we plan to begin composting our food waste and disposable utensils. Doing so will help us divert thousands of pounds of waste from landfills and create rich fertilizer to further green our village. Read more >>
