High Holy Day Information

Dear Friends,

We accomplished a great deal in 5779, and 5780 promises to be an even more exciting year! This year we will worship together at the Charleston Music Hall where we will create a sacred space to provide us all with a spiritually uplifting experience. Our Rosh Hashanah Family service and CHARLEY Yom Kippur service will be at the KKBE Barbara Pearlstine Social Hall.

A benefit of membership at KKBE is entrance to our High Holy Day services for all members in good standing and tickets will be mailed to you in mid-September. Included in this packet is the HHD service schedule, KKBE ticket policy, information on parking and other logistics.

Finances should never be an obstacle to KKBE membership or High Holy Day participation. If you should need an adjustment in your dues, please contact our Executive Director, Steve Bram, at 843-723-1090 or

On behalf of the Officers and Board of Trustees of Kahal Kadosh Beth Elohim, I wish you a happy, healthy and peaceful New Year.


Jeff Weinman
