High Holy Day Campaign 

The High Holy Days are upon us and we are entering an important time of renewal and reflection.  At this time, please remember Temple Kol Emeth’s importance in your life, and help to ensure that we remain strong and vibrant by contributing to the High Holy Day Campaign.

We hope your support reflects your passionate belief in the vital role TKE plays in your life and your community.  Our dynamic programming for all ages throughout the year gives congregants the spiritual and social environment that so many us look for in our daily lives.  Our clergy and staff are always there for us to celebrate simchas, but also in the time of need.  These are only two examples of how your contribution will help.

May the New Year be a year of health and happiness for you and your loved ones and may we all continue to share meaningful times together at TKE.
