Va’ani Tefillati—Connecting the Divine Within Us

We can’t wait to connect with you as we share the beginning of a new year with fresh and fulfilling High Holy Days experiences for you and your family to enjoy.

This year, we will delve into the overarching theme of "va'ani tefillati - connecting the divine within us". As we prepare to start a new year, this theme can direct you to contemplate: what inquiries arise within you about the nature of God when you think about prayer? How can we acknowledge vulnerability and the reality of our mortality? What does it mean to bare your soul? What challenges do we confront in incorporating prayer into our lives? The questions we have about God reflect our endless curiosity and desire to comprehend reality and the unseen. Exploring these questions not only broadens our intellectual horizons but also provides insights into our own beliefs, values, and human nature.

Whether you join us for our Services in our Sanctuary, Hendeles Chapel, Orenstein Mezzanine Hall, Hurwich Board Room, the Short & Sweet Services in our outdoor tent, or choose to connect from the comfort of your own home via our livestreams, we are sure you will find opportunities that are meaningful to you. We’ve made sure to prepare for any circumstances to maintain the health of our congregants, with socially distanced options. 

Those joining our High Holy Days Services online can access the livestream of our Sanctuary and outdoor Short & Sweet Services via our High Holy Days hub. You will be able to find the links to the hub page an hour prior to the start of Services each morning.
