Join the Little Shul by the River as we delve deeply into the Days of Awe, with multi-access offerings and in-person family services. Rooted by our ancient and modern rituals and prayers, awakened by the stirring melodies, we gather to uplift each other as we encounter 5784 with buoyancy, rejuvenation and grounds for hope and empowered participation in our lives.
Daily Elul Zoom Check-In.  Please join us for the last week of Elul as we continue the process of teshuva, of returning to our souls, and doing the inner work of repairing and deepening our relationship with ourselves, others and with the Divine. The themes of Elul are self-reflection, forgiveness and divine closeness, among others. We meet every morning (except Shabbat) at 9 am on zoom for our Elul check-ins. These 15-minute sessions include a teaching/meditation by a member of KHN and the blowing of the shofar.  Wendy Blevins, Ginny Witte, Anita Lerman, Rabbi Diana and Betsy Stern will lead teachings next week. Andy Kaufman will blow the shofar. Join us HERE


All services will include in-person indoor,
 in-person outdoor and Zoom access, unless noted

Selichot Shabbat (Friday Sept. 8 - Saturday Sept. 9) - Adirchai Haberman-Browns is returning to KHN from Jerusalem!

We invite you to join us for a community Selichot journey.

Beginnings aren’t simple and as the Jewish New Year is approaching, we want to prepare ourselves to really begin in the way that is best for us.  Embarking on this journey, we will travel through traditional liturgy and tunes, contemporary music and moments of sharing and reflection. Taking this time to recalibrate, remember and reconnect is a special gift we can offer ourselves and each other. May we merit to take a few steps together towards our fullest and brightest selves, bringing in this New Year with intention and love.

Kabbalat Shabbat, Friday evening at 7 pm .  Adirchai will lead us in traditional and contemporary tefillah.
