Everyone is welcome to attend our services, but there is an expense to the congregation. If you are a guest to our congregation for the High Holy Days, we ask for a $75 donation for a single person for the entire Holy Day season, or $150 per family. For security reasons we do need to know ahead of time who will be joining us, so please call our office at 360-896-8088 to let us know to expect you. Please do not let cost prohibit your attendance. If you are unable to contribute what we ask, please contact our Ezra committee at [email protected] to discuss what amount might be more comfortable for you.
Child care is available during all services. To utilize child care, please call our office at least 2 days prior to the date to make a reservation for your child(ren). Cost is $7.00 per child per service to cover costs of the caregiver, snacks and supplies. Payment is due in advance. (Reservation assures sufficient staff at the times required.)
Food donation – The High Holy Days is a time for CKA’s semi-annual food drive. Non-perishable food for donation to a local bank and/or a monetary donation to Mazon: the Jewish Response to Hunger (a hunger relief organization) may be left in the lobby throughout the High Holy Days.

When Yom Kippur concludes, please join us in the social hall for our community break-the-fast supper buffet prepared by Kol Ami Women of Reform Judaism.
