At this holy time, we traditionally ask for your generous investment in our High Holiday Appeal which 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.

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!
