Saturday morning: Join us for a gentle, guided meditation (beginners are always welcome); 9 a.m. Our Shabbat Morning service follows, with songs and discussion to open your heart and lift your spirits, 9:30 a.m. to noon, followed by Kiddush Lunch for all.

Saturday night: Be with us for the first service of the High Holidays, Selichot (Pardons), a late night gathering featuring music and meditation, a way of preparing ourselves for the New Year. No tickets required; all are welcome. 10 p.m. until midnight.

Sunday morning: Wondering about High Holiday services? Join us for a free class and unpack the history and—more importantly—the meaning of the “Days of Awe.” 9:30 a.m. Interested in Hebrew School for your child(ren)? Our Hebrew School Open House follows at 11:00 a.m. See the Hebrew School in action; meet the Principal Ronni Metzger and our teachers; sit in on a children’s service; Q&A with Rabbi and Principal.
