Rosh Hashanah at Sinai

6:30pm - Erev Rosh Hashanah Seder [Zoom opens at 6:00pm for schmoozing]

Join us as we start the New Year together!  Gather around the table. On the first night of the holiday, we will hold a special ceremony at home during which we recite blessings over a variety of foods that  symbolize our wishes for the year ahead. A Sephardic (from Spain) tradition, a Rosh HaShanah seder uses symbolic foods to introduce the meaning and message of Rosh HaShanah and the High Holy Days. We will use a Haggadah for the seder and the seder will include music, and the mourner’s kaddish for those observing yahrtzeit. The seder will be fun, thought provoking, fast paced and less than an hour long.

10:00am - 2nd Day Rosh Hashanah Service

The second day services for Rosh Hashanah are more relaxed and intimate than the day before, which often makes the contemplative work of the High Holy Days easier. Come join us as we take a closer look at the themes of repentance and renewal that mark this season.
