Kol HaNeshamah Programs
Shabbat is the cornerstone of our community. We meet twice a month on the first and third Friday evenings to worship in a space that we share with the Alki UCC, in West Seattle. We continue our Shabbat celebration with learning for adults & children on Saturday mornings, followed by our musical and participatory Shabbat service.
Kol Haneshamah offers a Hebrew school for children and an educational program for adults along with festive celebrations of Jewish holidays.
Kol HaNeshamah also offers Tikkun Olam opportunities - volunteer programs within our synagogue and the larger community that aim to achieve a socially just and sustainable society in a healthy world. This year, we are focusing on Israel/Palestine relations.
Recent Successes and Current Challenges
In September 2014 we embarked on a yearlong Strategic Plan process, called Sh’arim, Gateways to the Future. We have held community wide meetings in members homes to gather information for planning our future. Our next meeting is set for May 15th at KHN.
On November 23, 2014 we launched our Annual Campaign with FRED talks (Fresh, Relevant, Educational and Dynamic), which featured the interesting work and hobbies of KHN members. Other FRED Talk events were held through 2014 and the program is continuing through 2015. Our most recent event was May 3, called FRED Laughs!
We have ambitious plans for our future including fulfillment of our Strategic Plan goals over the next 3 years with expansion of our Educational Program for all ages; more member connection and engagement; increasing our Tikkun Olam and growing our community.
