Bring a picnic dinner and join us for Rosh Hashanah Under the Stars! Darchei Noam offers a service on the Eve of Rosh Hashanah for those who wish to gather with the community. Musical services, storytelling, and Rosh Hashanah fun for all ages. No ticket is required for this event, so bring your friends and family, even if they won’t be joining us at Darchei Noam for the rest of the High Holy Days. In the event of inclement weather, the services will be held at Darchei Noam.

Rosh Hashanah Services

On the mornings of the first and second day of Rosh Hashanah, Darchei Noam offers three simultaneous services: Rabbi Tina Grimberg and Rabbi Richard Hirsh each leads a traditional Rosh Hashanah services along with our Roshei Chazzanut, and our third is a service for families with school-aged children. Our services include Shacharit and a Torah service along with innovative signature High Holy Day programming each year.

Our Rabbis deliver thought-provoking sermons designed to guide us through the Yamim Noraim into Yom Kippur. The services are followed by a communal Kiddush snack of honey cake and juice, where we come together to wish each other a Shanah Tovah U’Metukah.


ConnectDN: 20s/30s Sip ’n’ Dip, Rosh Hashanah I, 12:15pm, Senesh Teen Lounge

Toast the new year in style. Join us for drinks and snacks to celebrate a new year of possibilities and take a moment to relax and meet new people. The first of our annual ConnectDN programs.


Tashlikh, Rosh Hashanah I, 1:30pm, Earl Bales Park

We will meet in Earl Bales Park to observe Tashlikh. The Tashlikh service is a symbolic 'casting off' of the sins of the previous year - we toss pieces of bread or another food into a body of flowing water and just as the water carries away the bits of bread, so too are our sins symbolically carried away. With this gesture we envision starting the New Year with a clean slate. Please look for maps of the meeting location outside the Sanctuary and Social hall.
