High Holy Days 5779

Friends and neighbors, it's time to join us again and together we will co-create the High Holy Days. Co-led with members of our congregation and the musical talents of Jerry and Sariel, Rabbi Linda together with the entire Tehillah community weave High Holy Day services filled with joy, tenderness, spiritual work, and intellectual rigor. After Selichot, Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, savor the sweetness of Sukkot and dance with us for Simchat Torah. Your voice, your ideas, yourself are essential to making the Days of Awe with us and celebrate the High Holy Days with passion and awe.
