Take a Stroll with the Scroll

  • Written by Woodinville Weekly Staff
If you happen to be driving between Woodinville and Kirkland on June 29 and see a few score of people carrying a Torah (or possibly pushing it in a stroller), feel free to honk and wave, or even pull over and join the parade from Kol Ami’s (KA) 12-mile move from the current home at Bear Creek Unitarian Church to its new shared space with Kirkland’s Northlake Unitarian Church.
Such a walk is a once in a lifetime experience, says the congregation’s Rabbi Yohanna Kinberg. “It’s a tradition to walk as a community with the scrolls, reminiscent of the Israelites traveling with the Ark of the Covenant through the desert to the Promised Land.”
The day kicks off at 8:30 a.m. with a breakfast at the Woodinville location and ends about eight hours later with a dinner at the new one. There are plenty of way stations along the way with water, shade and refreshments. Anyone can walk, whether congregational members or not, whether Jewish or not. Participants get a T-shirt and a reason to skip the gym for a few days, says Rabbi Kinberg.
Those interested in walking, volunteering, or sponsoring walkers can find out more information at
