High Holy Days 5776/2015

We are grateful to everyone who joined us for High Holy Days this year! They’re not over yet, though. One of our most joyous celebrations is yet to come….Simchat Torah!


Yom Kippur 2015

Simchat Torah – Monday: Oct. 5 at 7:00 PM: Potluck Dessert, Potluck Singing & Dancing,

Potluck Toasts = Communal Joy!

Didn’t you love our music during the High Holidays? Come back for more and join Rabbi David, Allen Kenner, the choir. And this year our Simcha Torah celebration will feature Cyrise Beatty Schachter. 7 songs for the 7 divine sefirot as we dance with the Torah for each holy attribute. Followed by a fast reading of the last words of Deuteronomy and the 7 days of creation that has been organized by Atara Melo. A perfect way to end the old year and begin the new. Please bring a snack, juice, wine, scotch, tequila, or vodka to share as we dance, sing, and make 7 l’chaims – 7 toasts to kindness, clarity, balance, hope, adornment, love, and planetary consciousness. Potluck dessert. Bring lots of kids, your neighbors, your neighbor’s kids, your whole neighborhood, and friends from other faith traditions.
