High Holy Days, Passover, Shavuot, Sukkot and More!

Rabbi David Novak will be leading our community accompanied by the outstanding musicianship of Cantorial Soloist Wayne Abravanel from the Temple Sinai bimah.  All services will be Live-streamed.  

Our machzor is Mishkan HaNefesh, a beautiful compendium of traditional prayers, poetry, essays and kavanot (intentional readings), featuring full transliteration of all Hebrew.  It is a prayerbook for the mind and heart, a resource that understands that people have different relationships to Judaism, prayer, and the themes of these observances.  One foot is in the past and the other firmly in the present, it is a machzor for today.
