Please join me for a friendly, joyous, participatory, and mindful celebration of the High Holidays with meaning, melody, and humor. It's more than just "services" but a way to connect. Get the most out of these powerful days of introspection and join a community of welcoming folks who are there for the experience and the good food .
We will be having a shofar blowing each day at 9:30am, 11am, and approximately 12:30pm. Some highlights of the Days of Awesome High Holidays include our New Year's Kabbalistic Kiddush, break out classes, speedy yet intentional services, stories, meditation, song, honey cake, inspiring and chill atmosphere, great Chazzan. . . I really hope you can join us.
As I say in the promotion for the events: "You don't have to pay a fortune, dress-to-kill, doze-off, question your tribal affiliation, be fluent in Hebrew, hear lengthy sermons, and eat stale honey cake this Rosh Hashanah."
Reservations are required and cost a nominal $36 to help us pay for some of the programming. For those who want or cannot afford the price, there are also volunteer positions available. Send me a msg via Twitter or Facebook if you are interested.
