We hope you can join us for the Days of Awe this September.

We are thrilled to share KHN’s 2023 schedule for High Holy Day services and observances.

Again this year, we extend our heartfelt welcome not only to our cherished KHN family but also to the wider Jewish community. You have the choice to join us within the KHN Sanctuary or experience the services via live streaming on Facebook.

We are committed to removing as many barriers to participation in Jewish communal life as possible, and KHN never charges for, reserves, or tickets High Holy Day seating. As we usher in this sacred season, we do ask our broader community to help us with our obligation to offer a safe and secure place to worship by registering in advance.  Advance registration is required for all non-member guests attending HHD services at KHN. The registration for Rosh Hashanah is now closed, it will close at 5pm on Sept 20 for Yom Kippur, so please register right away! No late, on-site, or day-of registrations will be available. Only advance registered guests may join us in the building.  (Everyone is welcome to experience our services online. No registration needed!)

KHN Members households do NOT need to register household members. Please DO register your guests such as friends and extended family (parents, adult children, grandchildren.)

Non-Member Advance Registration is Now Open: Registration Form Here
RH registration is now closed.  YK Closes at 5pm on Sept 20.  Please Register Today!
