Bagel brunch will be provided for everyone (including gluten-free). We welcome non-members to join us — there is no expectation of a commitment by coming to this event. Rabbi Adam Chalom, our Youth Education Director, B Mitzvah Coordinator and Sunday School teachers will be there to answer questions about our education program and congregation. Everyone is welcome at our events so you can meet us for yourself — no charge and no commitment.

Are you feeling pressure because “how it’s supposed to be” and “how it’s always been done” isn’t a good fit for your family? Are you concerned that non-Jewish family members might not be allowed to participate fully? Are you looking for a custom celebration that will be both personal and meaningful, balancing Jewish traditions and your unique family heritage? Explore your options during this free, informal FAQ session with Kol Hadash Humanistic Congregation’s Rabbi Adam Chalom, the Youth Education Director, and B Mitzvah Coordinator. You may also schedule a one-on-one information session in-person, by phone or email. Everyone is welcome at our events so you can meet us for yourself — no charge and no commitment. Kol Hadash Humanistic Congregation celebrates Jewish identity and culture — for us, it’s about people, not prayer.
