Sunday, September 13th


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.

pray icon.jpgRosh Hashanah Day

Monday, September 14th & Tuesday, September 15th


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 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!
