Start your day in inner contemplation, gently peppered with the inspiring words of King David’s psalms, all delicately wrapped around the Hear O Israel meditation. Continue with a course of Total Awe for the Silent Prayer.

Use this time for reflection and contemplation.
Read whatever works for you from the prayer book, but don’t miss saying Hear O Israel with the community.

   

Rabbi's Sermon & Shofar: 11:00–11:30 pm

Description: Recommendation:

Heartfelt words from our rabbi are followed by the central event of the day— the sounding of the shofar.

Whatever you do, don't miss the shofar.

Children's Services.

   

Melodious Musaf, Discussion and Songs: 11:30–1:00 pm

Description: Recommendation:
The shofar takes central stage as verses of royalty and remembrance punctuated with neatly ordered shofar soundings culminate in select passages mentioning the shofar itself. Familiar melodies are sung by all, creating an ambience of communal fraternity.

It’s worth it to stick around, if just for the luncheon and company.

Services are followed by a royal Rosh Hashanah luncheon. RSVP required.

   

Special for students: One hour crash service Thursday and Friday, 12-1pm

Absolutely  can't miss class? Can't sit through the whole service?
Experience one hour of prayer, reflection and the shofar.

 

Tashlich: Thursday, Sep. 21st, 5:00 pm
Location: The Point. Meet at Chabad at 4:30 pm
