As the holiday’s name suggest, Rosh Hashanah, or “head of the year,” marks the beginning of a new Hebrew year. We’ve taken another spin ‘round time’s spiral and 5776 is just two days away!
But Rosh Hashanah doesn't just mark a new calendar year; it is also a holiday of renewal that commemorates the creation of the world and designates the start of The Ten Days of Repentance (aseret y’mei t'shuvah), better known as the Yamim Noraim, or the Days of Awe, a 10-day period of spiritual self-examination, repentance, and renewal that culminates in Yom Kippur.
We invite you to join us for Erev Rosh Hashanah and Rosh Hashanah services this Sunday evening, Monday, and Tuesday, September 13, 14, and 15. Together, we’ll hearken to the sound of the shofar, welcome the new year, take stock, and rededicate ourselves to our ideals.
At Congregation Beth Sholom, we offer two main services.
Our SANCTUARY SERVICES will have many familiar melodies for the High Holy Days — intentionally without a cantor — to carry forward the interactive spiritual journey through music that has been underway at Beth Sholom.
KORET HALL SERVICES are participatory, engaging, and accessible davening experiences interspersed with teachings.
Additionally, we offer FAMILY SERVICES FOR CHILDREN AND THEIR FAMILIES. These are led by Beth Sholom’s Director of Congregational Learning, Michael Lederman, Director of Early Childhood Education, Katherine Friedman Barboni, and our Music Director, Jonathan Bayer. Rabbinic Intern Amanda Russell and Rabbi Aubrey Glazer will also make special guest appearances.
