Our Alternative Service is open to the public.

Join us for an intimate worship experience for adults, teens and older children. The music is participatory and is accompanied by piano, guitar, flute, and percussion. The prayers are introspective, contemporary, and encourage self-reflection.

The Erev Rosh Hashanah and Erev Yom Kippur/Kol Nidre services are led by Rabbi Stephanie Bernstein and Soloist Lauren Rigby.
