Congregational Dinner and Tot Shabbat in Honor of Veterans

Cohen Chapel
Murray & Nettie Kaye Social Hall (East Side)

During every Shabbat morning service for many years our congregation has joined together to pray and keep in mind those members of Ohr Kodesh serving our nation in the military. We think of each of them with pride, concern, and hope for their safe return. 

On Friday evening November 15, Hazak at Ohr Kodesh and the Tot Shabbat program will again combine forces to honor and thank Ohr Kodesh veterans for their military service at Shabbat dinner. It is our role and responsibility to ensure that our children understand the importance of the work of our veterans.

Following the program outline of our very successful event last year, the evening will begin with our Kabbalat Shabbat services for families and a welcome reception for our veterans.  Then we will join together for singing and welcoming everyone in the social hall, where we will have Kiddush, Hamotzi, and the blessing of children by their parents, followed by Shabbat dinner.
