Services, Shabbat & Holidays

We have had an incredible 5781, with moving and memorable remote services led by KHN youth and adult members as well as the wonderful Rabbi Allison Flash.  We are filled with gratitude for all the ways our community stepped up and stepped in to redeem this challenging year for a blessing.  Todah Rabah to the leaders, the readers, the singers and everyone who answered the call in big and small ways. Yashur Koach!

We are excited that our services will resume in-person in August 2021, followed by High Holy Days celebrated together at KHN!  We hope to meet for services in-person as long as King County daily COVID transmission rates remain less than 200.

On the first and third Friday evenings of the month, we celebrate Kabbalat Shabbat services together at 7pm at KHN. Our services will also be streaming on KHN’s FB Live page. 

The Tikkun Olam committee will be leading Friday services on August 6th. Ariel and Margaret, coordinators of the Anniversary Haggadah Workgroup, will lead Friday services on August 20th.

Every Shabbat morning congregants gather for Torah Study at 9:30am. Torah study will continue on Zoom through August 2021 with more information about ways to participate in 5782 coming soon. Michael Sarko will lead Torah Study in July, Kara Schoonmaker will lead in August.

Morning Minyans meet Sunday 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.

Some services, such as bnai mitzvah, are offered via Facebook live. Those services can be reached by clicking the picture below.
