Nefesh High Holy Days

September 29, 2019 - October 9, 2019

6:30 PM

Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services with Nefesh, Rabbi Susan Goldberg's east side Jewish community

A new year is coming. In the swirl of what it means to be a human in this moment of history, we pause. We step into a different kind of time, sacred time…reflect, move, grow, open, connect. We welcome you in. We welcome all in. And also, there is honey.

Erev Rosh Hashanah – September 29
The new year comes in as the sun sets. We welcome it with candles, song, prayer, and a beginning for the holy days that begin now.
Time: 6:30pm
Location: Friendship Auditorium
Address: 3201 Riverside Dr, Los Angeles, CA 90027

Rosh Hashanah Morning– September 30
The new year is here. We greet her with intention as we explore what we want the year to hold for us. What will be the focus of our year ahead for each of us? Shofar blasts, prayerpoems, song, Torah reading, discussion and honey!

Time: 9:30am
Location: Friendship Auditorium
Address: 3201 Riverside Dr, Los Angeles, CA 90027

Yom Kippur– October 9
Time: 9:30am
Location: First Unitarian Church
Address: 2936 W 8th St, Los Angeles, CA 90005
A day, a full day, to dive deep into our hearts and lives with tools to guide us. An ancient pathway, a new direction.

Yom Kippur morning: Our ancient tools lead us through an inventory of our lives and move us to listen. Prayerpoems, Torah reading, song, opening, inspiration.

Yom Kippur afternoon: meditation, yoga, study, discussion, Jonah and the Whale.

Yizkor: We honor all those in our lives who have died. With all the complexity and layers of grief as it changes over time. Prayers, ritual, connection.

Neilah: The holy days come to an end as the sun begins to set and we imagine the gates closing. Our voices rise. A unique service in our year filled with energy and possibility.
