Services, Shabbat & Holidays

As we prepare to enter 5783, we are looking back over the unexpected joys of the past two years.  We had moving and memorable remote and hybrid services led by KHN youth and adult members as well as Rabbi Allison Flash. July 1 2022, Rabbi Sabine Meyer stepped into our bima as our new settled congregational rabbi and has already led inspiring services at KHN and in nature. Looking back as we move forward, we are filled with gratitude for all the ways our community stepped up and stepped in to redeem this challenging time for a blessing.  Todah Rabbah to the leaders, the readers, the singers and everyone who answered the call in big and small ways. Kol Ha Kavod!

Our High Holy Day 2022/5783 services will return to full capacity. We will require nametags, masks and vaccinations for everyone in the building. (Anyone can join our services streaming on KHN’s Facebook Live page here.)

Detail service information is available on our High Holy Days 5783 at KHN Post.

Pre-registereed (non-member) Guests are welcome to join us in the sanctuary once again! ALL guests must pre-register to attend our HHD services. We will not offer day-of/on-site registration.

Registration opens on September 1st and we expect it to fill up quickly for Erev Rosh Hashanah, Rosh Hashanah 11am morning services, Kol Nidre and Yom Kippur 11am Morning service, however we do not expect any capacity limitations for guests for the 9:30 Family services, or any of the YK afternoon services.

Every Shabbat morning congregants gather for Torah Study at 9:30am. Torah study will continue on Zoom with in-person options for members who are coming to KHN for Shabbat School on the first and third Saturdays. Get more info about Torah Study here.

On the Saturday mornings following the first and third Fridays during the school year, KHN children and youth gather for Shabbat School.

Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are just the beginning. With so many Jewish holidays, there really is something for everyone. Eating outside in the sukkah. Dancing with the Torah and a live klezmer band on Simchat Torah. Hanukkah Game Night. Original, irreverent Purimshpiels inspired by everything from Broadway favorites to current events. Our community Passover seder.  Lag b’Omer bonfire at Alki Beach.
