Your investment in our High Holiday Appeal is a critical component of raising the necessary funds to support our mission and vision.

We remain committed to providing high-quality programs and meaningful spiritual experiences, none of which would be possible without your ongoing support. It is our hope that you will be inspired to make an investment in Congregation Kol Ami. What we do this year, as with every new year in the journey of the Jewish people, will determine our future and each step we take makes a difference. This is your chance to say Hineni—”here I am,” and I am proud to be part of Kol Ami and perpetuating Judaism for us, our children, and our children’s children.

Thank you for being as generous as you can. Increasing your donation from last year will make all of us forever grateful. Please donate today!

On behalf of the clergy, staff, and Board of Trustees, we wish you L’shana Tovah U’metukah—a happy, healthy, good, and sweet year!
