Open Yad Project: Rooftop Havdalah & Picnic!


Join us for a rooftop picnic meal, a sunset view, and a chance to greet a new week together in song! 

The Open Yad Project will provide a picnic-style meal and drinks, but we'd love you to contribute as well by bringing a vegetarian/dairy side dish, dessert, or drink if you are able!

We'll gather on the rooftop of Congregation Kol Ami, enjoy our meal and a beautiful sunset, and then we'll share in the musical ritual of Havdalah, marking a separation between Shabbat and the week to come. It's a ritual that uses all of our senses to help us recognize the power of time itself, and we hope it will spark a chance to sing and reset our spirits for the week ahead! Instruments welcome, and no experience necessary. Bring yourself, bring a friend, and help us bring our week to an end :)

Kol Ami is located at 1200 N. La Brea Ave, West Hollywood CA, 90038.
