Why Shir Hadash for the High Holidays?​

  • Because you are looking for an uplifting High Holidays experience that is relevant to today while still grounded in the Jewish tradition.

  • Because you enjoy services led by a rabbi who inspires spirituality, sings enthusiastically, smiles broadly, and connects with all of his congregants one on one as well as in a group.

  • Because you want to know what your prayers mean while you are saying them.

  • Because you would like to feel a part of services and not just a spectator.

  • Because you would like to feel like a part of a Jewish community.

  • Because you are looking for engaging children's programming for Erev Rosh Hashanah, Rosh Hashanah Day 1, Kol Nidre, and Yom Kippur morning services.
