Rosh Hashanah

September 18-19

Known as the birthday of our world, it is the day to hear the call of the shofar, and to be in radical amazement
of the world that surrounds us. Our spirits are lifted as friends, family, and community members from all over
the world are called together for a day of earnest reflection and renewal.
