ROSH HASHANAH 2nd DAY

We “cast our sins” (in the form of breadcrumbs) into flowing waters. We are planning an outdoor, socially distanced and masked tashlikh experience after Rosh Hashanah Day 2 services. Location and details to be determined.
The Shabbat between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur is called Shabbat Shuvah, Shabbat of Return, because its special haftarah reading begins with the words “shuvah Yisrael,” “return O Israel,” a message to us all as we seek teshuva, return, during this season.
The Yom Kippur evening service begins before sundown with this annulment of vows and speech. We often dress in white as we seek to have our “insides match our outsides” and have our spiritual slates wiped clean.
The Yom Kippur evening service begins before sundown with this annulment of vows and speech. Again, we often dress in white as we seek to have our “insides match our outsides” and have our spiritual slates wiped clean.
Traditional prayers will be interspersed with insightful and meaningful readings and kavannot (intentions). White clothing is traditional.
