pray icon.jpgRosh Hashanah Day

Monday, October 3rd & Tuesday, October 4th


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 Shema meditation. Continue with a course of Total Awe for the Silent Prayer.

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

torah icon.jpg Torah-Reading, Sermon & Shofar


Description: Themes of divine intervention generously garnished with human drama as Sarah gives birth to Isaac at the age of ninety. Second Day: The gripping narrative of the near death of Isaac.

Recommendation: Stories, anecdotes and one-liners serve as a platter to words of inspiration in a short but exciting sermon. Whatever you do, you don’t want to miss the Shofar blowing. It is the highlight of the Holiday and the main Mitzvah of the day!


shofar icon.jpgMussaf and Buffet Lunch


Description: The Shofar takes central stage as verses or royalty and remembrance punctuated with neatly ordered shofar soundings culminate in select passages mentioning the shofar. Followed by a royal luncheon.

Recommendation:  It's worth to stick around, if just for lunch and good company!.
