Spend the High Holidays with Kehillah! We are partnering with a number of local venues and businesses to make this much-needed celebration one you cannot miss. We have five exciting events lined up for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur this year. These are casual, contemporary options: No Hebrew experience required. Interfaith and family friendly. All are welcome!
Sorry, SOLD OUT – Erev Rosh Hashanah Dinner & Service at Rabbi’s | Sept. 6 at 6 p.m.
You’re invited for Rosh Hashanah dinner at the Rabbi’s house in Brandermill! Enjoy a gourmet, Ashkenazi-inspired meal catered by James Beard-nominated chef (and Iraq War veteran) Chef Henry Preston, along with your Kehillah friends. Afterward, gather for music, prayer (no Hebrew experience required), poetry, and teachings with musician Robin Rio and Rabbi Patrick.
Rosh Hashanah Service at Blue Bee Cider | Sept. 7 at 6 p.m.
Join us at Blue Bee Cider for a unique, interactive Rosh Hashanah service. There will be music, poetry, prayer, and teaching, followed by light hors d’oeuvres by local restaurants Truckle Cheesemongers, Jewfro, Refire, and more. Guests 21 and over receive a free cider on us!
Kol Nidre at Feed More | Sept. 15 at 7 p.m.
Yom Kippur that makes a difference! Join Kehillah at Feed More for a meaningful, introspective Kol Nidre experience. Proceeds from ticket sales will fund Feed More’s mission of distributing nutritious meals and wholesome food directly to those who need it most.
Yizkor/Neilah Service at Mid-Lo Mines Park | Sept. 16 at 5:30 p.m.
A Yom Kippur experience—outdoors! This combination of tashlich, yizkor, and neilah is perfect for someone who wants to conclude Yom Kippur surrounded by nature, music, and a whole lotta love. An ideal service for kids! The service will be held under the amphitheater. Please bring your own folding or beach chair.
Break the Fast Party at Rabbi’s | Sept. 16 at 7 p.m.
What’s Yom Kippur without breaking the fast? Join us at the Rabbi’s house in Brandermill for bagels, lox, kugel, and more by our own Rebbetzin Stefanie. Some vegetarian and gluten free options will also be available.
