Ma’yan Tikvah announces High Holiday services

Registration for events below is online here.

Rosh HaShanah – Morning Service Accessible by MBTA 554 Bus. Monday 9/10 9:30am – 1:00 pm, followed by lunch and tashlich. Location: Cedar Hill Camp, 265 Beaver Street, Waltham, MA

Celebrate the Rosh HaShanah holiday in an outdoor morning service lead by Rabbi Katy Allen and Gabi Mezger. All are welcome to attend this traditional and nontraditional service that allows all registrants to participate if they choose to share their voice. We also invite you to bring your children as we have a kid-friendly activity planned which will take place during part of the service.

Connect to the world around you through singing, meditation, prayer, a Torah reading and discussion, and an opportunity to hear the shofar. You may find a deeper connection to the holiday than you have in the past.

A vegetarian potluck lunch and tashlich will follow the service. (All registrants will receive additional details and are asked to bring a vegetarian dish to share.) Please register online here by 5pm on 9/9.

The service will be outside so please dress for the weather, bring a water bottle and bug spray. In the event of inclement weather, we will move under an outdoor pavilion. This location is handicap accessible and can be reached using the 554 MBTA bus.

Kol Nidre, Tuesday, 9/18 6:45pm-8:15 pm, Location: Congregational Church of Weston, 130 Newton Street, Weston

All are welcome to join Rabbi Katy Allen and Gabi Mezger of Ma’yan Tikvah as they lead an informal service that combines both traditional and nontraditional rituals, and allows attendees to participate if they choose to share their voice.

The service will be held primarily indoors, but we will go outdoors if weather permits. Hear the haunting Kol Nidre melody, sing, meditate, and join in on a discussion related to the meaning of Yom Kippur. This event is handicap accessible.
