We gather on the High Holy Days to seek God’s presence, to share our lives as Jews and to be part of the community of Israel. Our services offer a diversity of style, blending the traditional with the contemporary in prayer and song. Below is the schedule for this year. All services will take place in our new Synagogue Building!
Rosh Hashanah Morning Service: 10:00 AM
Family Service: 3:00 PM
Taschlich: 4:30 PM
Everyone is welcome to attend our services, but there is an expense to the congregation. If you are a guest to our congregation for the High Holy Days, we ask for a $75 donation for a single person for the entire Holy Day season, or $150 per family.
For security reasons we do need to know ahead of time who will be joining us, so please register at http://tinyurl.com/kftfh82 to let us know to expect you. Please do not let cost prohibit your attendance. If you are unable to contribute what we ask, please contact our Ezra committee at Ezra@jewishvancouverusa.org to discuss what amount might be more comfortable for you.
Child care is available during all services. To utilize child care, please register at least 2 days prior to the date to make a reservation for your child(ren). Cost is $10.00 per child per service to cover costs of the caregiver, snacks and supplies. Payment is due in advance. Reservation assures sufficient staff at the times required.
Food donation - The High Holy Days is a time for CKA’s semi-annual food drive. Non-perishable food for donation to a local bank and/or a monetary donation to Mazon: the Jewish Response to Hunger (a hunger relief organization) may be left in the lobby throughout the High Holy Days.
Rosh Hashanah Kiddush - Following Rosh Hashanah morning services, please join the congregation for Kiddush lunch. In order to ensure we have sufficient food, we ask that you register before September 26.
In addition, please make a donation to cover the cost of the meal – $13/adults (13 and older) and $7/child (5-12 years old). Your check made payable to Congregation Kol Ami should be sent to our mailing address:
