Meet the Communities Livestreaming the High Holidiays
On Rosh Hashanah, tradition tells us our fate for the coming year is written in the Book of Life, and on Yom Kippur it is sealed—what will we commit to building in the coming year that might change the course of our own lives, and how will we commit ourselves to movements for justice in the year to come?
Meet the communities are offering live streaming of their Rosh Hashanah & Yom Kippur Services. If you haven’t registered, you can here.
Kehilla Community Synagogue: Bay Area, CA
Bay Area, CA
Kehilla is a community of social progressives and spiritual seekers: a participatory, musical, celebratory and democratic congregation of all ages, identities and family constellations.
Kehilla observance traditions include rousing music, contemplative music, prayer, meditation, and dance. How do we collectively access our deepest selves surrounded and supported by our community? How do we re energize ourselves to continue our work for justice in the world in the coming year? We rediscover the secret each year.
Our services are a combination of traditional and original liturgy, along with a rich musical experience, and social justice-centered talks and Torah study. We create a spiritual home for politically-engaged Jews who want to do the deep personal introspection of the High Holidays within the understanding that our lives unfold in a wider world. As a community we believe in radical inclusion, and welcome your full Jewish self – questions, doubts, connection to Jewish values and a search for new answers.
We are an intentional congregation rooted in core values that guide the life of our community. We draw our inspiration from Torah’s central story of liberation, from the voices of prophets who courageously spoke truth to power, from the chutzpah of ancient rabbis who responded to the reality of exile with a vision of healing and righteousness and from countless generations of rebels, radicals, revolutionaries and rabble rousers – Jewish and non-Jewish alike – who challenged the status quo in order to create a better, fairer and more equitable world.
Our services will include our unique mix of prayer, action, music, poetry, learning and inspiration and look forward to seeing new and familiar faces as we continue to build our Tzedek community.
Congregation Nevei Kodesh is a renewal congregation building a dynamic, inclusive, multigenerational, participatory community dedicated to renewing Jewish tradition through engaged spiritual practice, vibrant song, meaningful study, and responsible social action.
