ROSH HASHANAH

Both a time for great celebration and introspection, Rosh Hashanah recognizes a year concluded, a year begun, and encourages us to look inside ourselves.

While Rosh Hashanah is called "the" Jewish New Year - it is not the only Jewish New Year. Even the timing of the holiday (the first day of the seventh month of the year) is fodder for discussion. 

Our congregation - consistent with North American Reform custom - marks Rosh Hashanah as a one day occasion. We hold Erev (Eve of) and morning Rosh services.

We conclude our services with traditional apples and honey and invite our congregation to join us at the Great Plains Nature Center later that afternoon for another tradition of Rosh Hashanah - Tashlich. 

We welcome non-members to participate in our Rosh Hashanah services but do ask that visitors contact the office before attending.
