the sweet spot!
Yom Kippur with Living Judaism and Congregation BCMH.
Wouldn't it be nice to be touched by the High Holidays; to come away inspired, or perhaps a little wiser?
Our services combine sweet holiday melodies and an array of thought-provoking classes taught by some of Seattle's top Jewish educators. Pray, probe the deeper meaning of the day, take a moment to reflect, and reconnect.
We welcome Jews of all affiliations, levels and backgrounds.
