Rosh Hashana morning

Join Kehilat Kolenu for a special Rosh Hashana 5780!

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.

Our Rosh Hashana morning service is based upon the three quintessential Mussaf prayers: Malchuyot, Zichronot and Shofarot. In between thoughtful readings and time for reflection, we will facilitating some beautiful Hebrew singing.

As with last year, we have a capped capacity of 650 for each of our Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur morning services. This is to ensure both the safety and enjoyment of all those present. In consultation with community members, we have decided that this year an online ticketing platform is the most equitable way to distribute attendance across these 650 places. A ticket will be required to attend each service.

Head here for Rosh Hashana tickets.

At the conclusion of the service you are invited to stay around and enjoy some delicious honey cakes, food and drink.

As in previous years, there will be a concurrent children's service available.

This event is being held on the land of the Bunwurrung people of the Kulin nations whose sovereignty has never been ceded. We pay our respect to Elders past, present and emerging
