Kauai Rabbi Rob Kvidt

Reminder: Join us for Shabbat Nachamu tomorrow! This Sabbath of Comfort sets the stage for our transition from the mourning of Tisha B’Av to the spiritual heights of Elul, Rosh Hashana and beyond.

Our own Kauai Rabbi Rob Kvidt is excited to lead his first service since being ordained in New York City in June at Congregation Ezrath Israel. Attending the ordination from JCK were Allan and Judy Rachap and Jeff Tucker. Prior to leaving Kauai, JCK board co-president Carol Pescaia presented beautiful lei to be worn at the ordination.

This is a momentous and joyous event for the Jewish Community of Kauai and you won’t want to miss it.

Some highlights of the service will be:

  • Flute trio and duet with Rabbi Rob, Susan Hironaka and Kenneth Hironaka
  • Dvar Torah: Vaetchanan – Deuteronomy 3:23-7:11
  • Sermon: Take Action Against Gun Violence

We will have an Oneg Shabbat following the service catered by Sandy Jennings, and as always, we will need your help with serving and cleanup.

Where: St. Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church, Hardy Street, Lihue. Map.

When: Saturday, August 17, 2019.

Time: 10:00 am.

Siddur: We will be again be using our new Siddur, Mishkan T’filah. Please donate name plates in our new books to honor loved ones!

Tzedakah: In our tradition of charity, and in the spirit of aloha, please bring donations of food and/or money for the Loaves and Fishes Food Pantry. The Kauai food pantry distributes food to about one hundred people each week, is staffed by volunteers, and is supported by donations, including ours. Please donate money, canned and/or non perishable food.

For more information please contact us.

As a reminder, JCK needs sponsors for Shabbat Onegs. Please take part, as any level of participation is available.
