Doing Jewish Differently

We celebrate Jewish identity and culture by replacing worship with human responsibility and equality.

 
 
 

People not Prayer

Human beings have the intelligence and wisdom to determine the purpose and course of their lives, free of supernatural guidance.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Welcoming Intercultural Families and LGBTQIA+

Everyone should celebrate who they are, including intercultural families who feel connected to both Jewish and other religious or cultural heritages.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Engaging Rabbi

"To be Jewish is to be an heir to Jewish tradition, not a museum curator. The tradition is ours to adapt and use consistent with our values and beliefs." -- Rabbi Adam Chalom

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Customized B Mitzvahs

Instead of being assigned the weekly Torah portion, we empower our students to think for themselves and choose their reading from the Torah or other Jewish literature based on their interests and inspiration.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Meaningful Holiday Celebrations

Instead of doing things because "that's the way they've always been done," we explore the meaning behind holiday traditions and adapt them for today.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Innovative Membership Model

Money should not matter in finding a meaningful connection. Members freely choose their annual financial contribution, another example of how we "say what we mean and mean what we say."

    Sunday School Try-Out

    Sunday, Oct 17th 9:30a to 11:30a
    We welcome non-members to join us - there is no expectation of a commitment by coming to this program. Are you thinking about how to expose your children to Jewish culture and identity? Your family is welcome to ‘try out’ our Sunday School by visiting their grade’s class for the day. Kol Hadash Humanistic Congregation holds weekly Sunday School classes for students in Kindergarten through Confirmation. Each class has a well-defined curriculum, covering topics in Jewish history, literature and culture. We encourage children to value their Jewish identity and to think for themselves. Our whole school -- students, teachers, and families -- come together to celebrate Jewish holidays as well as for special programs on Jewish culture, community service activities and more.

    Tuesday, Oct 19th 7:30p to 8:30p
    The other two major Jewish harvest festivals, one for the summer’s first fruits and the other for the major fall harvest, existed before the “High Holidays.” Later generations connected them with the myth of Torah revelation, but modern times opens up a renewed connection with harvest and plenty.
