Rosh Hashanah, Sunday-Monday, September 29-30

As evening leads into morning, we celebrate the first day of our New Year. This year, we invite people to begin anew with us – starting a new practice, renewing the life of an old relationship, turning over a new leaf as we let go of old ones in Tashlich, and exploring all the new ways in which this community can bring life and purpose to its people.

Yom Kippur, Tuesday-Wednesday, October 8-9

Yom Kippur can have a special kind of restorative and reconciling power. Beyond asking for and granting forgiveness, it gives us the permission to just let go of all that negative emotional baggage that we drag around with us every day. It’s a reminder that giving and receiving forgiveness is not only possible, but an expected part of being Jewish. 

These services offer an invitation to do the work of reconciling and reaching out – not just on a spiritual or self-reflective level, but relationally – with the people who mean the most to us. We want you to find your people—both new and old—these High Holidays at TBT.
