Services, Shabbat & Holidays

In cooperation to crush COVID-19, KHN has moved our services online.

On the first and third Friday evenings, we celebrate Tot Shabbat at 5pm followed by Kabbalat Shabbat services at 6pm, find us on on Zoom and streaming on Facebook live.  Swing by a few minutes early on Zoom to schmooze, we will open the zoom space and let folks in as soon as we get our tech up.

Every Shabbat morning congregants gather for Torah Study at 9:30am.

Morning Minyans meet Sunday and Tuesday mornings at 9:15am via Zoom.

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.
