L'Shana Tova - warm wishes for the new year. As has been our long standing tradition, Kehillath Shalom will continue to open its High Holy Day Services to the Jewish community and we hope you will join us.
Ours is a welcoming, inclusive, egalitarian congregation - a "Community of Peace" as our name translates. We are a different congregation from the norm, a group of diverse backgrounds, interests, religious observance, and Jewish knowledge. Kehillath Shalom is an active, vibrant, warm, intellectually and spiritually invigorating Reconstructionist community. Thus, we hope that your interest in Kehillath Shalom will not end with Yom Kippur... We have weekly services, social action programs, a two-day a week religious school, family programs, adult education, book discussion groups and much more.
Services will be held in the Huntington area once again this year. To minimize security issues, times and directions will be sent to you with your passes. To reserve your passes, call (631) 367-4589 during business hours.
At this season of reflection and renewal, it is customary to make a donation in support of the synagogue. We suggest a donation of $150 per adult and $75 per child, although your circumstances may suggest a different amount. In addition, we now have a special Children's Service Only Family Ticket with a recommended donation of $150 per family. Nobody wishing to attend services will be turned away, but you must obtain tickets in advance. Your generosity will help us keep our doors open to you and your friends in the Long Island Jewish community and defray the costs of presenting these High Holy Day Services.
Thank you for your support. We look forward to having you join us to welcome the New Year.
