Kolot Chayeinu / Voices of Our Lives

We are a Jewish congregation in Brooklyn, where doubt can be an act of faith and all hands are needed to build our community.


Registration for CLP 5775 is now open.

Remember! Rabbi Lippmann is gone for the month of July and services are held in the (somewhat cooler) social hall downstairs. In need of pastoral care? Email student rabbi Heath Mackenzie Reynolds at Heath@kolotchayeinu.org.

Saturday, 7/26

9am Torah Study led by Sandra Abramson

9:30am at the Tallis Tree: Lisa Zbar will lead a chanting group, as a way to release and touch joy, grief, hope, fear, longing and whatever else may be in our deepest selves. Please join us and feel free to bring drums or whatever helps to move you. Let's share the voices of our lives. (The Tallis Tree is near the ball fields at the south end of the Park. Enter from 11th St. & PPW, cross the inner road and walk straight in. The tree is in front of fencing where they're restoring a ball field, to the left of the horse corral.)

10:00am Breakfast 

10:30am Services led by Heath Mackenzie Reynolds with Jocelyn, Trisha Arlin (and we hope more) leyning, Sandy Abramson doing d’var Torah
