Please join Kol Sasson for Shabbat davening, 9:15a in Israel Hall at 8825 East Prairie. In order to reduce the length of davening, we will begin with Nishmat, so please be sure to come on time so we can start (and finish) promptly. 

Masks are, of course, required at all times, and we are very fortunate that our space is large enough to permit appropriate social distancing. Please refamiliarize yourselves with our COVID-19 protocols and the health self-assessment, both of which are located here.

Our Tikkun Leil Shavuot will be led by Jane Shapiro and Sarah Roth. Please join us starting at 10pm on Sunday night (May 16) for this exciting learning opportunity - the sign up can be found here.

On Monday (May 17), we will hold our traditional communal picnic at Central Park. Bring a picnic blanket and your own dairy or pareve lunch, and we will provide a dairy dessert! Please RSVP here so we know you are coming, and we will have a delicious cheesecake ready for your family – please let us know if you need a gluten free dessert for any family member. We will also provide grape juice for kiddush, but please bring your own rolls for hamotzei. If you are attending shul in the morning, you can store your food in the refrigerator at SVAJ, and we will walk to the park after davening. If you are joining from home, you will be able to find us on the east side of the park at approximately noon. Appropriate COVID protocols will be followed. Questions? Contact Chava at
