High Holidays at Bonai Shalom

applesandhoneyDear Congregants and Guests,

High Holy days with Congregation Bonai Shalom is a special time.  Our Rabbi, Rabbinic Intern 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 a 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.  This year, Rosh Hashanah is September 20-22 and Yom Kippur is September 29-30.  We will be welcoming the new year at the NEW 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 and living at home or in school 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 $150 per person/per holiday. College students away from home this season, please contact us at 303-442-6605 before placing your order.  You may use the same form to order tickets.

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.

Looking for a quiet space for study and reflection during the Holidays? There will be sources set out in Reb Zalman’s library for personal reflection and/or chevrutah partner conversation about the themes of sacrifice of Isaac, barrenness and parenting, teshuvah, and what it means to be a human (and how we might do that a little better).
