Mark your calendars! It's SNL Kol Ami style, as in Synagogue Night Live. Let's start the new week together and meet members of our community as they share their talent. 

We will start with Havdalah followed by three to four performers. Adults, as well as kids, will have a chance to share their talent and entertain us on a Saturday night. And really, where else will we be, but home? If you play an instrument, sing, compose and/or recite poetry, tell jokes, or do magic tricks we want to hear from you. Visual artists can show us their work or maybe your talent is...? Plan on 10 minutes where you will have the "stage," preceded by one to two minutes of introducing yourself. We are also looking for individuals or families who would like to lead Havdalah and/or emcee.

John and Helene Cuomo will be the emcees to start us out. Contact the Cuomos via email or call them at 801-273-0192 if you would like to perform, or you have questions or suggestions. "SNL" will start ~1 hour after sunset each Saturday night beginning February 6th until March 13th.

Let's connect and make our community a little warmer on these cold winter nights. "See" you then!
