Keddem is proud to hold High Holy Day services open to the community at no charge, as space permits. We rent space large enough to be able to invite all who would like to worship with us. We request reservations and welcome donations to cover our expenses.
For information about Keddem's High Holy Days services, visit our home page during the preceding month or two. Look for the link to our online registration form and to our High Holy Days calendar of events.
Services are community-led and use a machzor (High Holy Days prayer book) created by Keddem (provided at the door to all worshipers). All Hebrew in the service that is recited or sung by the congregation is transliterated.
We celebrate Shabbat together in a private home, usually on the third Saturday morning of the month. We use the Reconstructionist siddur (prayer book) Kol Haneshamah and discuss the weekly Torah portion. The hosts provide a light, vegetarian-dairy lunch (additional dishes welcome). Occasionally, we hold Shabbat evening services (watch the calendar).
For your home Shabbat evening celebrations, we've provided some songs and blessings. Please click here to download.
We celebrate holidays together when someone offers a home and is willing to organize a gathering. For some holidays Keddem participates jointly with other local congregations.
