L’Shana Tova! Let this new year be a good year. A year of health, peace, and justice.
We're back in person and still online!
What to expect this High Holidays at Kol Ami:
This year we'll have early and late service options to allow for social distancing in the sanctuary. Rosh Hashana day services will be held outside at Vasa Park in Bellevue. We’ll also be online viz Zoom. Choose what works for you and expect connection.
Song leader Emily Stochel, our choir led by Susan Bardsley and soloist Zoe Starikov will inspire us, as will study groups, guided discussions, song circles and more during Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur services.
