2019 High Holiday Calendar of Events
We are happy to see you, whether you'd like to come to part or all of it.
High Holiday services in Highland Park style. Come feel rooted in one of the cities oldest synagogues still in its original location. When the last rays of sun fade behind the 1930's stained glass, we will welcome the New Year together. This year's theme is "Seeds of Light," combining the feeling of spiritual rebirth and our commitment to the environment. We are now solar powered and our native plant garden is low water. Services use a Conservative Machzor and combine the beauty of elaborate ritual with the egalitarian, inclusive, and eclectic feel of Highland Park.
Services will be led by Rabbi Jason Rosner, Cantor Ken Rothstein, and a great many of our members!
(Non-ticketed events are free of charge, but letting us know you're coming ahead of time is appreciated!)
