The Tikkun v’Or theme for High Holidays this year is Paneem el Paneem (Face to Face) — with ourselves, each other and the larger world. Related talks will be woven throughout, including topics like welcoming the stranger and facing the many individual and collective challenges of our times.
Evening services will be led by Rabbi Shifrah Tobacman, Lauren Korfine and Azameira (our singing group). These services will feature sermons by the Rabbi, and also “Jewish Journey” talks by congregants Jen Savran-Kelly (Rosh HaShanah) and Eric Maroney (Kol Nidre).
Rosh Hashanah morning prayers will be led by congregant Rabbi Lenore Bohm, Rabbi Shifrah, Miranda Phillips and Azameira. A congregant sermon will be offered by Doug Stayman.
Yom Kippur morning prayers will be led by Michael Margolin, and Rabbi Shifrah, Miranda Phillips and Azameira. A congregant sermon will be offered by Carol Shama
