The High Holy Days are a time to take stock of the past year, look forward, and recommit ourselves to living in line with our values and our deepest potential individually and collectively.

New DJC members often comment on how warm and musical our services are. With a unique balance of tradition and innovation, DJC High Holy Day services are relaxed, participatory, and spiritually moving regardless of your knowledge or background.

Our services include community aliyot where dozens of us stand on the bimah together sharing in the common joys and challenges of life. We also include wisdom and personal reflections shared by community members from the pulpit (kavanot), Rabbi Miriam’s inspiring sermons, and music that lifts our hearts and elevates our voices.

As we come back together this year at High Holy Days, we are planning a multi-access experience with both online and in-person activities.
