ROSH HASHANA DINNER
Friday, September 15, 6:00 PM
Welcome the Jewish New Year and Celebrate Shabbat with a short service and festive dinner. On the two nights of Rosh Hashanah, Jews enjoy a festive meal in the light of candles, which are lit before a brief blessing is said. The meal begins with Kiddush, a blessing over wine, and then continues with blessings over round challah bread dipped in honey and other foods that express our wishes for a plentiful, spiritually uplifting, and sweet new year.

EAT. PRAY. BLAST
Sunday September 17 12:30 PM
Join our community in welcoming the New Year together with a traditional Rosh Hashana lunch and Shofar blowing.
Rosh Hashanah feasts traditionally include round challah bread (studded with raisins) and apples dipped in honey, as well as other foods that symbolize our wishes for a sweet year.
Rosh Hashanah is the birthday of the universe, the day G‑d created Adam and Eve, and it’s celebrated as the head of the Jewish year. It begins at sundown on the eve of Tishrei 1 (Sept. 25, 2022) and ends after nightfall on Tishrei 2 (Sept. 27, 2022). Join us as we join in a few short prayers in asking for a healthy sweet new year.
The central observance of Rosh Hashanah is blowing the shofar (ram’s horn) on both days of the holiday (except on Shabbat). Learn more about the significance of blowing the Shofar.
