The High Holidays are a special time for Kehila as we welcome the public to attend our services. Reb David and the congregation are accompanied by talented musicians, and the bema is adorned with tapestries created by Kehila members. Community members of all ages participate in the services, which include much singing and dancing. Our unique children's programs integrate worship, music and art.
Last night we had a small seder with two families. Myself and my pre-bat mitzvah daughter and our friends Jessica and Levy and their 11-year-old daughter. In the press of time before the seder, I gathered several Maxwell house haggadot and three other types of haggadot (none of which was a matched set) and printed off a few copies of the HIAS haggadah supplement to make the seder a forum for thinking about refugees. This was not a matched set!
