Hakafa means "encirclement."
We are a Reform congregation
of people who choose
to have no building,
no board of directors,
and no fund-raising.
Our CIRCLE has been growing
for nearly 40 years. But as we grow,
our intimate, caring, and
welcoming atmosphere remains.

Lag BaOmer
Bonfire & Kumzits


Saturday, May 25
6:00-8:00 PM
Emily Oaks Nature Center in Skokie

Make plans to join us for Hakafa’s annual Lag BaOmer bonfire and kumzits*! You bring dinner and any musical instruments you’d like, we’ll provide the sh’mores!

*Kumzits is a compound-word in Hebrew derived from the Yiddish words (kum-come) and (zits-sit). The word is used to describe a gathering where we come together and sing.


Monthly
Bedtime-Friendly
Shabbat Service

Join us on the last Friday of each month for our “bedtime-friendly” Shabbat service which begins at 5:30 p.m.! This is a regular service, and it enables families with young children to have a Friday evening Shabbat experience with the rest of our congregational community. A rug with toddler toys will be available. We hope you will be there!

Note: This service is in place of our regular 7:30 p.m. service.
