Rabbi Samuel M. Cohon

Make Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur matter this time around! For everyone who has ever struggled through a long Days of Awe service and wondered why he or she was there, this is a two-part exploration of the great themes of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur prayer, including an introduction to the music. Two sessions with honey cake, tea, and coffee at the break. Fun, informative, entertaining, and different. This year, we will focus on introducing the new High Holy Day Machzor, Mishkan HaNefesh, exploring its new and innovative way of expressing the themes of the Days of Awe.

Everyone receives a free CD of High Holy Days music as well!

Registration Fees: $35 for members; $45 for non-members

Sundays, 10:00 am to 11:15 am; September 17, 24
