High Holidays 5777/2016
The word shana (literally, “year”) comes from a Hebrew root meaning to learn, to repeat, and to change. These words define life at Kane Street Synagogue, where we learn and cherish Jewish traditions as we make them relevant to today.
We welcome all members, their guests, and the wider community to join us at High Holiday services, as well as our many activities throughout the season:
- Please see the full 2016/5777 schedule of High Holiday services, which take place in the Sanctuary at Kane Street, and at the Mary McDowell School on Bergen Street.
- We have a busy roster of family services, and childcare is available on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. New this year, please join us for our new teen High Holiday services.
- To join us on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, complete the High Holiday Ticket form, which is for members as well as the wider community.
- As we celebrate the New Year, Kane Street continues to enjoy a period of growth and renewal. Please consider contributing to the Kol Nidre Appeal to help ensure that the programs that make Kane Street such a dynamic community continue to thrive.
- For some, a cherished High Holiday experience is the Yizkor service. Participation in Kane Street’s Yizkor Book of Remembrance is an additional opportunity to honor the memory of loved ones who have passed away.
- Kane Street is participating in a HIAS-sponsored campaign to highlight the plight of refugees and to support educational, advocacy, and volunteer activities in support of refugees. On Wednesday, October 19, join us as we inaugurate our efforts during a Sukkot dinner and presentation by Rabbi Jennie Rosenn of HIAS. No need to sign up, but if you would like to request childcare, contact SocialJustice@kanestreet.org.
- Sukkot is a highlight of the season. Join us for the Sukkah Hop on Saturday afternoon, October 22, as members welcome visitors to their sukkot. Also, don’t forget to order your lulav and etrog.
Shana Tova! We look forward to welcoming you, your family, and your guests to Kane Street to mark a sweet and peaceful New Year.
