Koleinu means our voice.

One of the most important things that Cantor Peicott and I have been talking about as we frame the services is that the High Holy Days, or any prayer experience for that matter, is not supposed to be a passive experience. The whole idea of the services today, High Holy Days, and even on Shabbat...this is about interactive inclusion. This is about not just about us being up here but how we all bring our voices into this experience.

- Rabbi Joel Nickerson

Connect, reflect, and be inspired at Koleinu – a new prayer experience and spiritual journey of discovery, contemplation, and community.

Rabbi Joel Nickerson and Cantor Lisa Peicott introduce Koleinu - a soulful new prayer experience with an extraordinary band of musicians, to welcome in Shabbat with music, prayer, and community. These engaging, reflective, and musical services are designed for adults and families with children above the age of 13. If you loved Nefesh services, you’ll want to check out Koleinu for an inspiring, transcendent, and uplifting Kabbalat Shabbat.

Starting on Rosh Hashanah and continuing on the first Friday of each month thereafter, Koleinu Shabbat services will take place on the Glazer Campus at 7:00 p.m.
