We invite you to join Kol Ami on a journey to and through the High Holidays, whether in person or via livestream, or a combination. Here is our High Holidays programming schedule for 2021/5782.
Preparing for High Holidays
— Get Your Shmita Boots On! Tuesday evenings, August 3 and 17, 7:30-8:30 pm. With the sabbatical/shmita year starting on Rosh Hashanah, delve into the texts and concepts with Rabbi Gilah and Herb Levy. We’ll touch on debt relief, agricultural practices, and how idealism meets reality.
