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.
We’ll offer the best of both worlds – the intimacy, accessibility, and participation that Zoom services provide combined with opportunities for safe, in-person, outdoor rituals like outdoor Shofar blowing, Tashlich (the Rosh Hashanah ritual of casting away regrets and wrongs into a body of water), and small group outdoor activities like gatherings for the sweetness of apples and honey. During the summer, there will also be various opportunities to gather outdoors in small groups, meet new people, and welcome each other back.
Interested in attending our High Holy Day services? We encourage you to go a step further, and join us as a member of the Danforth Jewish Circle.
Your Membership pays for so much more than High Holy Day services. It makes it possible for us to sustain and grow our vibrant Jewish community dedicated to diversity and inclusion, social justice and climate action, and inspiring Jewish living and learning for these challenging times. No one is turned away, regardless of ability to pay. For more information about membership and fees, head over to our membership page.
