"Jewish High Holy Days
"
This active participatory service will recognize the two high holidays known as Rosh Hashanah & Yom Kippur. The eve of Rosh Hashanah occurs on Sept 29 & Yom Kippur falls on October 8. The 10 days between are known as a time of charity, prayer & repentance during which people are encouraged to right those they have wronged & to forgive those who have wronged them. In the traditional liturgy, the Angel of Life opens the Book of Life on Rosh Hashanah inviting the faithful to reflect on their destinies. At the end of the 10 days, the Angel inscribes their fate in the following year into the Book. To emphasize charity, all are invited to bring canned/non-perishable goods for the food donation basket.  Childcare Available
