The High Holidays are fast approaching – the first day of Rosh Hashanah is September 30! We want to be the first to wish you and your family a happy, healthy New Year.

High Holiday services will be held this year, as in previous years, in the Kol Rinah building at 829 N. Hanley Rd., which we are sharing with The Journey. To meet the differing needs of our community, for much of the holidays, we will be offering two simultaneous services on:

  • The first day of Rosh Hashanah, Monday, September 30
  • The second day of Rosh Hashanah, Tuesday, October 1
  • Kol Nidre, Tuesday evening, October 8
  • Yom Kippur, Wednesday, October 9

A more traditional service will take place in the upstairs sanctuary and auditorium and will include the full liturgy. A service that will include musical instruments will take place in the lower auditorium. Both services will be approximately the same length. We will be all together for the Torah service each day, which will be in the upstairs sanctuary and not include instruments, and where the sermons will be given.

Services are open to all. No tickets are required for the High Holidays. If you would like to bring a family member, guest or know someone who would like to attend services at Kol Rinah, please call the office and give us their names. We suggest a donation of $180 per person for non-members, but all are welcome, and no donation is required. All seating will be open and wheelchair and walker-accessible seating will be available.


Insuring the safety of our congregation continues to be a priority. As in past years, the only entrance to the synagogue will be through the parking lot doors. We will be utilizing name tags as the first line of security - identification. Your name tags were mailed to you in your packet. Please advise us by September 6 of any guests you are bringing, so that name tags can be mailed to you. Otherwise, those name tags can be picked up at the door. Please wear/bring your nametag(s) to all services (Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur).


Please make sure that your Member Support is up-to-date. If you have questions, please contact the office.
