Bat Kol 40th Anniversary

Lech Lecha ... Go Forth...

This is the 40th Bat Kol Anniversary Celebration. We reunite and journey through time, sharing Bat Kol experiences, singing songs that call us to gather together and hearing messages from alums, friends and associates of Bat Kol across the globe. We echo once again ... we will hear and we will do. Celebrate with us.

Rabbi Michael Klein-Katz
