As evening falls on the first day of Rosh HaShanah, we will gather for a celebration of music, movement, wisdom teachings and meditation. The festivities will be led by Buddhist and Jewish teacher Nina Wise, with renowned musicians Sheilah Glover and Stephen Kent. With Nina’s guidance, we will reflect upon the past year and where we are headed, pray for healing and peace through song and embodied prayer. as we rejoice in this moment of renewal. This event is for those who regularly celebrate the High Holy Days and those who want to experience a Jewish New Year for the first time. All are welcome.
