Join us for engaging and meaningful services on the High Holidays.
I am excited to share that we will once again be holding High Holiday services this Fall.
The dates and times are as follows:
September 25th – 1st Day Rosh Hashanah 10:00 am – 1:00 pm
October 3rd – Candlelighting & Kol Nidrei Service – Yom Kippur Eve 6:00 – 7:30
October 4th – Yom Kippur 10:00 am – 1:00 pm and
N’eilah service at 6:00 – 7:10 pm
Cindy and Gregg Wolfer have graciously offered to host the services again at their home which is at 48 Kennedy Road, in Cresskill, NJ.
Services will be geared for families and will be educational, explanatory & meaningful at the same time. Both adults and children will have the opportunity to participate, help lead, or ask questions during the service at a level they are comfortable with. This is a very different experience than coming to a service where you watch as part of the “audience”, try and figure out what’s happening, and count the pages to see how long until it is over. It should also be noted that this is not a “kiddie service geared towards tots or very young children. My hope is that younger children will be able to participate with their families but there will also be some activities for them as well during the service.
Each service will contain an educational piece, a prayer service including Torah reading, a shofar service (on Rosh Hashanah) and a group discussion in small groups of families.
This year we are adding a few new things;
1) Cantor Avital Lazar who graced us with her beautiful voice last Yom Kippur will be joining us for all of our services on both Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.
2) We will be adding on a N’eilah service at the conclusion of Yom Kippur followed by a breakfast meal to give families an opportunity to socialize and connect with one another.
