Puget Sound Jews, let’s make a joyful noise and sound the shofar together as we prepare for these most extraordinary High Holy Days!

Jews across the globe and across movement sound the shofar during the days leading up to Rosh Hashanah as we prepare to enter the Days of Awe. 5780 has demanded we wrestle with tradition, complacency, action, hope, outrage, obligation, imagination, accountability and justice. Who do we want to be? How will we move through the days ahead? The months? The years? How will we answer the call of 5780 in 5781?

On September 13, 2020 | 24 Elul 5780 at 1:00pm Pacific Time, we invite all Jewish people and their families from across Puget Sound and around the Salish Sea to step outside and sound the shofar. 

Want to practice your shofar skills? Have tips for others? Shine up your shofar and come to our Shofar Skills Shares on September 2nd & 8th 12noon Pacific via Zoom Meeting ID: 825 0494 4743 Passcode: Sound.

Kol Chadash builds Jewish visibility, resilience and collective wellbeing and is KHN’s direct, local response to antisemitism around the world and in Puget Sound. With shalom at the center, we meet folks where they are with grassroots action, direct advocacy, ritual, hands-on help, discussion, and responsive programming. We work in solidarity with our Puget Sound neighbors to resist Islamophobic, anti-Black, anti-immigrant, anti-LGBTQ and other bias violence as well. For more info about Kol Chadash, email Orin Reynolds at ProgramCoordinator@khnseattle.org.
