Talking to God: A Deeper Dive into the Texts of the High Holy Days
How do we find our voice, how do we hear God’s voice during these pandemic times when connection can be elusive? Together we’ll explore some of the powerful readings in Mishkan HaNefesh, our High Holy Day Machzor, that seek to bring us closer to God and closer to our own souls.

About the Service
Welcome the New Year at the Rosh HaShanah Teen Service! Led by teens – along with Rabbi Sarah Reines and Paige Borden (Music Educator) – this online, interactive, 75-minute service is much more than just a service with activities, music by Shir Leadership teen choir, videos, skits, and more! Suggested attire: “New Years” Nice.
2:00pm • Learning Session w/Rabbi Hayley Siegel
A Season of Change
The Hebrew word Shanah, as in Rosh HaShanah, is commonly translated as “The New Year.” But, did you know that the Hebrew word for Shanah, also comes from a root meaning “to change?” Join our virtual class as we draw from the well of Talmud learning (Rosh HaShanah 16b) and study four major aspects of life which the rabbis believed should be transformed by dynamic change: charity, crying out, one’s name, and geographic location.
