Join Temple Kol Ami for The High Holidays

What are you doing for the High Holidays? Why not spend them “Together at Home” with Temple Kol Ami? At Temple Kol Ami, we celebrate the High Holidays together through spiritually uplifting services. This year our virtual services will be led by the engaging Rabbi Bruce Aft and a dynamic group of lay leaders including Michelle Silva, Adena Sherman-Adams and Jonathan Shaw. We are also excited to have cantorial student Shayna Burack join us on the virtual bimah this year.

Rabbi Aft is a wonderfully engaging clergy who has spent may Shabbats with Temple Kol Ami in the past. He recently retired from Congregation Adat Reyim of Springfield, Va after 29 years of service. Rabbi Aft is currently a visiting scholar at George Mason University in the Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter School for Peace and Conflict Resolution. He is also the President of the community board for Operation Understanding DC. A huge baseball fan (and former college player), he and his wife Sue will be volunteering for the Washington Nationals Youth Baseball Academy.

In addition to adult Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services, TKA offers Junior Congregation services (ages up to 12).
