celebrating Rosh Hashanah & Yom Kippur

Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are collectively known as the Yamim Nora’im (Days of Awe), the holiest days of the year. We welcome the new year with apples and honey, family togetherness, and hope for the days ahead. The sounds of the shofar remind us that forgiveness and change are both possible and necessary.

At B’nai Israel the High Holidays typically bring more than 3,000 people to the synagogue. Members choose from three traditional services—the order of prayers are identical but the size, style, and physical space vary. We also offer a Family Service Experience, primarily for children 5 years old  and under with their parents, adult learning opportunities, and a full menu of babysitting, youth, and teen services. Each of our services is participatory, with members of the congregation leading some prayers, chanting Torah, and accepting literally hundreds of other honors. We also convene as a united community at selected moments during the high Holy Days, including a beautiful Tashlikh ceremony attended by hundreds at our B’nai Israel Agam (pond). 


We were honored to gather our voices together again in-person while also welcoming more than 22,000 views on our Dweck Sanctuary Livestream. We wish everyone a happy, healthy and sweet year ahead.
