Rosh Hashanah Service
Thursday, September 21, 2017 - 9:30am
Welcome the New Year in community with a full day of programming beginning at 9:30am. All times approximate.
- 9:30 am: Morning Blessings & traditional liturgy led by Rabbi Andrea and Yosl Kurland; 12:00 Torah & Shofarot service
- 10:00 am: Children's Craft & Story Time. This special program for children will be offered during the first day of Rosh Hashana services by friend of the temple and educator Melissa Pincus. Family members are welcome to attend the children's program or return to services.
- 1:00 pm: Community Lunch. We will enjoy a veggie-dairy pot luck lunch. We will also need helpers to set up and clean up. Please let Rhonda know what you can contribute at 413-624-5175.
- 4:00 pm: Tashlich/Casting Off at Green River Recreation Area. Come for a lovely all ages gathering and a short sweet ceremony of releasing what is not helpful, what is holding us back and holding us down. Bring snacks or a picnic. Please note that the park is technically closed so there will not be access to rest facilities.
Temple Israel does not sell tickets for the high holidays. All are welcome. Donations (and new members) are welcome, as well.
