Rabbi David Shneyer

An Invitation from Reb David

Dear Friends, There is no better time than the High Holidays to reflect on a moral path for transitions in our lives and in our communities. We hope you will join us as we move into 5778.

Shabbat observances run the gamut among Kehila families. Some attend services regularly and enjoy a break from daily life from sundown Friday to havdalah on Saturday. Others gather in small groups for Friday dinner.

As a community we have monthly onegs or havdalahs during the school year, generally with a short service and planned program, sometimes catered and sometimes pot-luck. Adults gather after Friday dinner five or six times a year for a short service, program, and dessert.

Many members of our community enjoy davenin' with Reb David on Shabbat. For more information, please visit

Life-Cycle Events

Kehila members are encouraged to include as much of the community as possible in celebrating their life-cycle events. Thus, our children – and, indeed, adults – can observe and participate in many rituals through the years.
