Open Hearts, Open Doors - High Holidays with Congregation Beth Ami

Our traditions can awaken in each of us the sense that every single moment in life is an opportunity and every day is a precious gift. L’Shanah tovah tikateivu! May you and all those you hold close be written in the Book of Life for a good and sweet year!

We’re so pleased to welcome you to Beth Ami as we approach the coming Jewish New Year, 5779. We hope you will seize the opportunity and take time out: to step back; to reflect on the past year in the unique way we call “T’shuvah”; to combine ancient traditions and modern perspectives; to listen to, and join in chanting both new and familiar melodies.

Above all, we hope you find the way to “reconnect” with your True Source. Perhaps this is your first time participating; perhaps it’s part of your family’s tradition; perhaps you simply decided to stop back after a hiatus of one or more years. Come, and feel at home!

Congregation Beth Ami does not charge for High Holiday tickets. Donations are gratefully accepted. Contact us for your free ticket, and join Rabbi Mordecai Miller, Cantor Yael Krieger, and our traditional, egalitarian, inclusive community.
