High Holy Days 5778

KI welcomes you to our High Holy Days services! We are pleased to welcome Hazzan Saul Wachs again this year. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the office at 617-277-9155 or mainoffice@congki.org. The office is open 9:00 am – 5:00 pm Mondays through Thursdays, and 9:00 am – 2:00 pm on Fridays.

We have some important information about our service locations to share for 5778/2017. It has been a year of tremendous achievement and growth for Kehillath Israel. KI’s momentum continues to build as we embark upon the historic restoration and expansion of our 384 Harvard Street facilities. We thank Brookline High School and Temple Ohabei Shalom for providing space for our celebrations this year during construction.

Due to construction, this year our Rosh Hashanah Day 1 & 2, Kol Nidre, and Yom Kippur services will not be held at 384 Harvard Street.

We will be at Brookline High School for Rosh Hashana Day 1 & Yom Kippur (school is not in session), and Temple Ohabei Shalom for Rosh Hashana Day 2. Smaller services will continue to be held at 384 Harvard Street when practical.

Service Descriptions

As we strive to create an ever more inviting, welcoming space for worship, we will continue to provide two distinct main service options. For the first day of Rosh Hashana and all of Yom Kippur, we will offer:

“Sanctuary Service”
(The service usually held in the Sanctuary)
Led primarily by Hazzan Saul Wachs, this will be the traditional KI service as Rabbi Hamilton and Hazzan Wachs have beautifully led together for many years.

“Epstein Service”
(The service originally held in Epstein, last year held in the Chapel)
This is a more intimate, songful, and participatory lay-led service using the traditional liturgy of the High Holy Days.

On the second day of Rosh Hashana, we will all join together for a single, soulful experience led together by Rabbi Hamilton, Hazzan Wachs, and lay leaders.
