Rosh Hashanah Day

9:30 AM – Morning Service Begins, Focus on our Children
9:30 AM – Alternative Adult Meditative Session (1 hour)
10:30 AM – Service Continues for Adults; Child Care Begins
1:00 PM ~ Vegetarian Potluck Lunch
3:00 PM – Tashlikh, right at Ner Shalom's new Labyrinth!

We move deeper into the spirit of the Holy Days, listening closely to the needs of our souls. The morning includes a Shofar Service as well as a reading of our Creation story in Torah –– giving us a chance to re-imagine our world, layer by layer. The morning service will conclude by approximately 1 PM. The day will open with stories and song suitable for young children. An adult-only contemplative option will be running at the same time.

Tashlikh, free and open to the public, will take place at our new labyrinth, which we will reënvision as a mikveh of living water. We will engage in a new reinterpretation of the old ritual of letting go of what holds us back by casting seeds into the living water.

Combining traditional liturgy with creative innovation, High Holy Days at Ner Shalom are deep, musical, uplifting and unorthodox. For a full listing of services, click here.
