הנינו – Hineinu – Here We Are

Rosh Hashanah: September 18 – 20
Yom Kippur: September 27 – 28

Gather your strength. Water your roots. Connect with your people.

We can’t always know what’s coming next, and the way forward isn’t always clear. But no matter what is happening, we can say hineinu: here we are, together.

This year for High Holy Days we won’t be coming together in a building. But we will be coming together in community, online. We’re building a High Holy Day community that treasures all who enter, a community that joyfully celebrates our lives, a community that practices love and pursues justice, a community that reaches into the teachings and melodies of our Jewish ancestors and traditions to guide us toward liberation and wholeness for ourselves for all people.

Join us for our main High Holy Day services, Family Services, Tot Services, and – public health regulations permitting – outdoor Tashlich and Simchat Torah.

We won’t be selling tickets this year, but we are inviting you to register for services and to consider making a contribution to help sustain Kehilla.

Kehilla members are automatically registered for High Holy Days – become a member here! Members can register friends and family below.
