Erev Rosh Hashanah: Wednesday, September 20, 7:30 PM

Rosh Hashanah is a deeply religious occasion. The customs and symbols of Rosh Hashanah reflect the holiday's emphasis on both communal and personal transformation. This service begins our “call to repentance.” 

Rosh Hashanah Day: Thursday, September 21

9 AM Family Service (Appropriate for families with children infant – grade 1)
Bring your family and celebrate the beginning of 5778 with other TBT families.

10:30 AM Morning Service (Appropriate for adults and children grades 2– 12)
Our Rosh Hashanah Day service will take advantage of a new model for the blowing of the Shofar. We blow the shofar throughout the morning service, continually calling our members to prayer and introspection. Everyone gathers together as a community of prayer for services, and then our students in grades 2-5 will be led by adult leaders and parents to the Jewish Day School for continued High Holy Day-based activities.

4 PM Sha’arei Tikvah - Celebration for all!
Temple De Hirsch Sinai (1441 16th Avenue, Seattle)
Led by Rabbi Aaron Meyer and Cantor David Serkin-Poole, this community-wide service is accessible to people of all abilities and ages. Sha’arei Tikvah is designed to be meaningful for children and adults with cognitive disabilities, as well as their families, caregivers and friends.

5 PM Tashlich
We gather at Phantom Lake (2050 156th Avenue SE, Bellevue) to cast leaves into the water and recite prayers of repentance.

Erev Yom Kippur: Friday, September 29, 7:30 PM

Kol Nidre Evening Service
For many Jews, the essence of the Yom Kippur service takes place at the very beginning of the holiday, at the evening service that ushers in Yom Kippur.

Yom Kippur Day: Saturday, September 30

9 AM Family Service (Appropriate for families with children infant – grade 1)
Bring your family to participate in the day's reflections with other TBT families. 

10:30 AM Morning Service (Appropriate for adults and children grades 2– 12)
Everyone gathers together as a community of prayer for services, and then our students in grades 2-5 will be led by adult and parent leaders to the Jewish Day School for continued Holy Day-based activities. After their program time is complete, they will return to the main service. 

1 PM “Confessions from My Soul” Service
This creative service: “Confessions from my Soul,” assembled by Rabbi Lipper, creates a journey towards engaging of Jewish tradition. This is a service designed to create spiritual movement towards greater introspection and soul searching. In addition, we have created healing moments for our participants. 

3 PM Mincha Torah Reading Service
We take a moment to reflect and focus, praying for peace and grace. The centerpiece of this service is the reading of the Book of Jonah. 

4:30 PM Yizkor Service
Our Yom Kippur Yizkor service will create a moment of transcendent remembrance as we light candles to remember those who have died and the many memories that they have left behind. As light warms our bodies in times of darkness, so will this light guide our way through these moments of memory. 

6 PM Neilah Service
The Neilah prayer which we recite at the close of Yom Kippur has the potential to be the most concentrated, intense prayer of the year. 

7 PM Break-the-Fast
