High Holidays at Bonai Shalom

applesandhoneyDear Congregants and Guests,

High Holydays with Congregation Bonai Shalom is a special time.  Our Rabbi and our Chazzan work together to create a beautiful and meaningful High Holiday experience.  From our joyous Rosh Hashanah services to our yummy community kiddush lunch after services and our special Tashlich right in our own backyard, on the bank of South Boulder Creek. Our Kol Nidre and Yom Kippur services are powerful and meaningful.  During the break, we offer wonderful options for relaxation (yoga), learning and social justice.

Childcare and youth programming are available for those who sign up in advance.  Yom Kippur is October 8-9.  We will be welcoming the new year at the Boulder JCC located just across the street from the synagogue at 6007, Oreg Ave.  We hope you will join us.  Members are entitled to one ticket per adult member of your household.  Adult children who are under 26 are also entitled to a ticket.

If you are not a member of our community we would be so happy to welcome you as our guest. Tickets are for sale at $180 per person/per holiday. College students away from home this season, please contact us at 303-442-6605 before placing your order.  We’re happy to honor reciprocal tickets within the network of the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism affiliates.

Note:  You WILL NOT be admitted to services without proper name badge (tickets) identification.  Please order your High Holiday tickets below and sign up for volunteering.
