About Kol HaNeshamah
KHN is a progressive congregation rejoicing in Torah, Avodah, Tzedek and Tikkun (Torah, Prayer, Justice and Healing.) K’hillah/Community is important here. Kol HaNeshamah members travel from all around Seattle and King County to take part in this vibrant congregation.
We deeply cherish our open tent and are building an engaged Judaism that meets us where we are and celebrates where we can go together. Here you will find congregants of all ages leading services, chanting Torah, celebrating simchas, comforting the mourner, guiding Torah study, engaging in ritual at shul and home, amplifying calls for justice, and sharing their skills and expertise toward a more loving and vibrant Jewish Journey.
Youth, elders, families, singles, solo parents, interfaith partners and families, BIPOC Jews and diverse families, straight, gay, lesbian, bisexual, queer, transgender, and non-binary folks, and folks from across the spectrum of Jewish practice have all laid claim to the mixed-multitude that is Kol HaNeshamah.
Kol HaNeshamah offers Jewish education across the life course. Our education program for children ages 1 – 14, includes classes on Shabbat mornings and an afternoon Hebrew school. Our adult education program is varied and lively, including Torah Study on Shabbat mornings and series and workshops throughout the year. Kol HaNeshamah Temple Youth (KHTY) is lead by an active youth board who engage young people 14 and up.
Jewish holidays are festive celebrations at Kol Haneshamah! We take action toward Tikkun Olam/Repair of the World, including asylum and refugee justice work, food and housing justice and family projects such as support of the West Seattle Foodbank and Habitat for Humanity.
Everyone is welcome to attend any of our services, including High Holy Day services, and membership is not required. If you’d like to find out more about membership, please go to the membership page for details. Kol HaNeshamah is a member of the Union for Reform Judaism.
