Service Descriptions

Combined Service:
The Combined Service will be led by Rabbis Fel and Zerin and Cantor Mayer. It will feature reflections, teachings, a dramatic Torah reading, and musical highlights from both the Classic Meeting House and Classic Sanctuary Services.

Classic Sanctuary Service:
The Sanctuary Service captures the grandeur and majesty of the High Holy Days. Join Rabbi Fel and Cantor Mayer for services that feature informative and inspiring reflections on the prayers and themes of the day while including familiar melodies and a four-person choir. There will be no organ this year.

Classic Meeting House Service:
These services emphasize congregational singing, engagement, and meaning-making. Led by Rabbi Rachel Zerin, these services will offer thought-provoking explanations of the prayers and insights into the themes of the holidays, as well as prayers sung to new melodies and traditional favorites.

Soulful Service:
Rabbi Alan Flam and Judy Kaye will once again lead Soulful High Holy Day Services. Soulful Services encourage people to spiritually stretch - in prayer and in teshuva work (reflection). We slow down the traditional pace of prayer and focus on key prayers and themes of the Holy Day. Soulful prayer is a blend of traditional davening, silence, chant, movement and poetry so that our whole selves - mind, body, breath and heart - can be engaged in prayer.

Souful Services will be held on both days of Rosh Hashanah. On the first day we will focus on the question: How can we find holiness? Torah will be chanted and Rabbi Flam will give a sermon.

On the second day, we will look at Abraham's test and consider how we are tested. We will listen to the call of the shofar and in place of a sermon, we will engage in discussion together about change - personal change (teshuva) and change needed to create a more equitable and racist-free society.

For Yom Kippur, Soulful Services will be held in the evening (Kol Nidre), the day of Yom Kippur, and in the late afternoon for Ne'ilah (concluding service). 

Feel free to contact Rabbi Alan Flam if you would like more information: alan.flam@gmail.com
