Education / Cultural

The Ed/Cult Committee fosters a fellowship of learning around themes central to our members that creatively integrates elements from many Kehilat committees.  We seek to deepen and broaden our understanding of Jewish life through shared study, exploration, and experiences, which can include lectures, discussion, study, and book groups and trips to theaters and museums.  Committee members develop ideas and organize events.

    High Holidays

    Our wonderful High Holiday services depend on the participation of KC members and friends.

    Consider taking on a new role this year:

    • If you’ve led a prayer, perhaps lead a service with a KC friend.
    • Enjoyed the delicious food after services? Help plan the repast. 
    • Enjoyed hearing about the lives of members’ loved ones, Share your memories at Yizkor.  

    Everyone is welcome. Service fees are low, and are waived or reduced for anyone unable to pay.
