Happy midsummer on the cusp of Shabbat! Coming together elevates our spirits. We are thrilled to rejoin in person after two years and to be able to provide High Holiday services for those searching for a spiritual experience that makes a difference. (We are also working on providing a zoom feed of our live services for those who are out of town and those unable to join us in person.)

Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel spoke of approaching the world with “radical amazement.” What he meant was, to experience with both body and soul; with renewed energy, appreciation, and willingness to be surprised and grateful. That is Bayit Shelanu’s approach to Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur - through song, prayer, creative readings and community, all accompanied this year by the ocean outside our windows at the Annenberg Community Beach House. 

* Rosh Hashana morning will conclude by leaving our terrace room setting and walking a few steps down to the beach to end with the brief, celebratory Tashlich, tossing our breadcrumbs (representing what we wish to shed from our lives) out upon the water.  Yom Kippur evening-Kol Nidre, as well as Yom Kippur morning and afternoon’s gathering for discussion with the Rabbi, music, and the final Shofar, will all be held at the Annenberg site where there is plenty of parking. (Once more - we are working to set up a zoom feed for those unable to be there so that your friends and family can participate from Los Angeles and across the country.) 

Remember, Rosh Hashanah comes a bit later this year — we gather on the first day - Monday September 26th and Yom Kippur - Tuesday evening, October 4th and Wednesday, October 5th. 

We look forward to seeing and being with you in person by the water (or on zoom), for our 2022 High Holy Days. Blessings for the remainder of the summer, and for reemerging in health and into the light.​ 

If you’re planning to be there in person and want one of the 130 seats available - you will want to register now!

B’shalom, Jan
