à la carte Rosh Hashanah Services
(Click here for the Yom Kippur menu)

 To make your synagogue experience more enjoyable and less confusing, we have complied a brief description of each segment of the service "menu style" that will allow you to make an informed decision about which part you would like to attend.

No prior knowledge is neccecary to experience our inspiring and meaningful High Holiday services to the full. Be an active participant as you pray from an English-Hebrew prayer book, sing, and explore the meaning of the age-old words. A special kids interactive program will be available for your children to enjoy.

As always, all are welcome regardless of background, affiliation, or financial abilitiy. No tickets are required and there is no set fee to attend services. Contributions are welcome, yet due to the sanctity of Rosh Hashanaha and Yom Kippur, they should be arranged before or after the holiday itself.

Please RSVP to if you wish to attend.

Description: Enter the Days of Awe in style with strikingly soulful melodies shared by a communal voice. Sip in words of inspiration and leave in a state of utter awe. This is paired best with the dinner, but is also delicious on its own!

Recommendation: If you were looking for the place to be when the New Year begins, this is it! Follow up with a great dinner with friends new and old.  RSVP required.

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 Hear O Israel with the community. Keep in mind, we serve this dish only once a year.

torah icon.jpg Entree: 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, don’t 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 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. Services are following by a royal Rosh Hashanah luncheon.
Recommendation:it’s worth it to stick around, if just for the luncheon and company!
