Kol Chai - where people matter

Our High Holy Day Services
We hold special High Holy Day Children’s services at our synagogue

Our High Holy Day services are a spiritual high point of our year, a moment to reflect on the rest of one’s life. There is no better place to do teshuva (turning round) than at Kol Chai.

Most of Kol Chai synagogue services are at our home in Hatch End. However, many of our High Holy Day services, including Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services, take place in Northwood. We use the Reform machzor on 1st day Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur and the new draft machzor on Erev Rosh Hashanah and 2nd day Rosh Hashanah.

On Rosh Hashanah morning we have a children’s service and on Yom Kippur morning an alternative service welcome to all. On 2nd day Rosh Hashanah our service is highly participative, with everyone taking part.
