Blue Jeans Shabbat
Join us on the first Friday of each month at 6:30 p.m. for an energizing shabbat experience! Our Blue Jeans Shabbat is a relaxed fit atmosphere filled with spiritual triumph.
Join other families with young children to explore the wonder and value of our Jewish community as we celebrate a joyful and meaningful Shabbat celebration. This clergy led service will include wonderful music on guitar, upbeat songs, simple prayers and engaging stories. Our program is followed by dinner and a fun activity. Please call the school office or Temple office for times and dates of our scheduled services.
Holidays and celebrations are an integral part of Temple Kol Ami Emanu-El. They provide the rhythm of our Jewish Year and the thread that is woven into the fabric of our Jewish lives. Holidays provide an opportunity for members to pray, learn, and celebrate as a community. Please click on a holiday to learn the meaning, traditions, and how to participate at Temple Kol Ami Emanu-El.
The Jewish calendar is full of holy and sacred days. Kol Ami Emanu-El is a place to observe these days and a resource for those who wish to mark them outside of the synagogue.The Jewish year begins with the Days of Awe, from the Jewish New Year of Rosh Hashanah, through the 10 days of reflection, and concluding with Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement.
During these High Holy Days, we not only have services that speak to adults, but also services aimed at toddlers and families with young children. Babysitting will be available during Erev Rosh Hashanah, Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur morning services, Kol Nidre, Yizkor and Neilah.
Space is limited and only children ages 2-10 can be accommodated. Reservations and payment in advance is required. We have only a limited capacity to accommodate "walk-ins."
Our Jewish calendar consists of far more than Shabbat and the High Holy Days. We observe the three pilgrimage festivals of Sukkot, Passover, and Shavuot, and particularly enjoy the festive nature of Simchat Torah and Purim as special days of great joy and frivolity.
As a religious community we also observe the minor festival of Chanukah and the Israeli sacred days of Yom Hazikaorn, Yom Hashoa, and Yom Ha’atzmaut, our people’s Memorial Day, Holocaust Memorial Day, and Israel’s Independence Day.
