9:30am - Rosh Hashanah Morning Service [tickets required]
Led by our clergy and High Holy Day Choir, the morning service is a time for reflection and prayer with an opportunity to fulfill the mitzvah of hearing the shofar as it is blown. Our exceptional youth programming is offered for ages K4-6th grade which includes holiday activities and a special youth service. 7th & 8th graders are encouraged to begin in services with the adults before taking a break from the main service to have a group discussion in a more relaxed atmosphere. All of our youth will join us in the sanctuary for the shofar service.
3:00pm - Rosh Hashanah Young Children Service, Tashlich & Shofar Blowing Contest
This service is geared towards families with young children. After the shortened service, we will take challah breadcrumbs out to the creek in our backyard to symbolically cast away our sins by throwing the breadcrumbs into a body of water (purification). This is a way of expressing our yearning and repentance. Following tashlich, we will come inside for a sweet snack, then begin our famous youth shofar blowing contest!

9:30am - 2nd Day Rosh Hashanah Service & Kiddush
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.
6:15pm - Shabbat Shuvah Service
Shabbat Shuvah means the Sabbath of Return and refers to the Shabbat that falls between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. We’ll enjoy a service of invigorating Kabbalat Shabbat singing with the addition of special readings, a perfect combination for the High Holy Days season.
