Kol Hanearim

Kol ha-Ne'arim Project

The Kol ha-Ne’arim aliyah is a cherished minhag of the Simchat Torah holiday.

What a pleasure and honor it is for the members of the shul to share the nachat each year as we watch our children and grandchildren (and, for some, great-grandchildren) stand under an oversized tallit and receive an aliyah.

Over the past few years, it has become clear that our families and our community (kein yirbu) have outgrown our current tallit and that it is in need of expansion. I am pleased to announce that the creation of our new tallit has already begun and will, be-ezrat Hashem, be ready in time for Simchat Torah 5777/2016.

 The new tallit is being designed and constructed by our own extremely talented Ellen Friedman. At 17 feet long and 11 feet wide, the tallit will feature illustrations, artwork, and pesukim on the top and the underside and along the valances. A professional carpenter will construct four corner pillars and ten support pillars. The highlight of the piece will be the names of our children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, machine-embroidered by the very skilled Toby Eizik.

There are two ways that you may participate in this project. The first is to submit the names of your children, grandchildren, and/or great-grandchildren to be embroidered on the tallit. The cost is $1.50 per letter. Please submit your names on the form below. The DEADLINE for submitting your names is July 15, 2016. After that date, we cannot guarantee the names will be included for Simchat Torah this year. Names will continue to be added each year.

Second, please consider participating in our Kol ha-Ne’arim Project by dedicating a section of the tallit. Please see the pictures below illustrating available dedications. The material and labor costs for the tallit have been generously donated so that 100% of your contribution will benefit the shul. All dedications will be listed on the donor board in the main lobby.

 We look forward to celebrating together next Simchat Torah with our kehillah’s new tallit.
