Parking for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur Services: This year we are requesting all able-bodied congregants to park at Coolwater Christian Church, 28181 N 56th St, Scottsdale, AZ 85266 which is on the SE corner of 56th St and Dynamite (less than a ¼ mile from the synagogue.) Entrance to the parking lot is on 56th St south of Dynamite We will have shuttles to drive you and your family to and from services. Due to the traffic and speed on Dynamite, we ask that you please don’t try to walk and crossover Dynamite. The spaces in the synagogue parking lot will be for those who are elderly or mobility challenged as well as those who were asked to arrive early to volunteer at services. If you have a have a loved one who needs to be dropped off, please do so and then park across the street at Coolwater Christian Church. Thank you for your cooperation.
When a Kehillah member told us he wanted to wish congregants a Happy New Year but “would rather support Kehillah than Hallmark,” our holiday email greeting tradition was born! This year, we’ll share your holiday greetings with over 300 Kehillah email readers and friends in a special greetings email, which will be sent out the week before Rosh Hashanah. While your financial support of Kehillah is always welcome, enabling Kehillah to grow and to support your own unique Jewish journey, donations made at the High Holy Days hold an especially joyous place in our tradition of tzedakah.
We hope you’ll participate!
