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.

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.
