Yom Kippur

  • 1 Sinclair Street Elsternwick, VIC, 3185 Australia (map)

Join Kehilat Kolenu for a special Yom Kippur service this year!

Kolenu has endeavoured to bring you a meaningful, spiritual and musical service, combining humanistic values with a deep cultural understanding of Jewish heritage and tradition. We combine traditional liturgy with modern Hebrew poetry and original compositions to bring you a machzor that is both rooted and contemporary, inclusive and personal. Our Kehila is dynamic and egalitarian, and we hope you will find a place here to connect with the Jewish people, its past and its future.

The service will include a Nizkor service (equivalent of Yizkor) with an opportunity to say Kaddish and light a candle in the memory of a loved one.

We would be delighted to have you and your families, so please bring your loved ones! There will be a concurrent children's service.

We will be facilitating a community forgiveness platform during the service. Please contribute anonymously to the following question:
