Humanistic High Holiday Services
Even though the surplus of heat and humidity do not even hint that autumn is coming, the calendar tells us the Jewish New Year is on its way.
As Humanist Jews, we can use this time to review the last year. We can review the good things we have done and plan how we will make this next year even better. We can also assess what we did this year which we should not have done and what we should have done which we did not.
The Jewish High Holidays for 5779 are:
Rosh Hashanah on Sunday, September 9th at 5 pm.
Yom Kippur “Break the Fast” on Wednesday, September 19th.
