Kehila High Holiday Services 5780

Rosh Hashanah on September 29, 30 & October 1

Yom Kippur on October 8, 9

Dear Friends,

Kehila Chadasha welcomes your participation in services for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Rabbi David Shneyer will again lead services this year. This year in addition to the Children Service, Talia Orencel will lead a one-hour Teen Service for both holidays. Services will be held at Walter Johnson High School at 6400 Rock Spring Drive in Bethesda. On the 2nd day of Rosh Hashanah (October 1st), services will be held at the Viers Mill Rec Center, 4425 Garrett Park Road, Wheaton, MD. (Note that this is a different location than last year.)

Tickets for the services are limited, so please place your order well in advance. There are two ways to order tickets, list names for the Yizkor scroll and make tzedakah contributions:

  • Pay by credit card or PayPal using the online order form, or
  • Download the order form (payment by check only).

We will mail your tickets to you if we receive your order by Friday September 20th. Tickets for orders received after that date can be picked up at services at “Will Call.”

Your donation defrays the cost of the services and supports the work of Rabbi Shneyer in the larger Jewish community. As you may know, his diverse activities enrich Jewish life and promote an inclusive Jewish philosophy, human rights, social justice and collaboration between Jews and people of other faiths.

To keep the suggested contribution rate reasonably low, we have adopted these practices for accepting contributions:

  • High Holiday tickets are available either for each individual holiday or for both holidays.
  • Special rates are available for seniors, college students, young adults and teens.
  • If you feel your financial circumstances do not permit you to make the suggested contribution, use the enclosed paper order form.
