9:00 - 11:00AM
Morning Reflection and Torah Reading

Ida Noyes Hall

Description: 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. Kids program at 10:00AM.

Recommendation: 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.

11:00 - 12:00PM
Shofar and Inspiration

Ida Noyes Hall

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

Recommendation: Whatever you do, don't miss the shofar.

11:00 - 12:30PM
SPECIAL FOR STUDENTS: Crash Service

Ida Noyes Hall

Description: Can't sit through the whole service? 
Experience 90 minutes of prayer, reflection and the shofar.

12:00 - 1:30PM
Melodious Musaf, Discussion and Songs

Ida Noyes Hall

Description: 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.

Recommendation: 

It’s worth it to stick around, if just for the luncheon and company. Services are followed by a delicious Rosh Hashanah luncheon. RSVP required.

5:00PM
Tashlich

The Point

Description: Fresh water fish in their native habitat provide a pleasant ambience for a brief petition for forgiveness.
