Join us for our meaningful humanistic High Holiday services to usher in the year 5780

  • Celebrate Rosh Hashanah amongst friends!  Experience our service with powerful readings, evocative poetry, and beautiful music … rather than prayer!
  • Come hear Kol Nidrei beautifully sung on Erev Yom Kippur and the Yizkor Suite played by our musical ensemble.
  • On Yom Kippur Day we’ll present inspiring stories of transformation about Humanist Jewish heroes: Israeli author and activist Amos Oz and feminist author Betty Friedan

Rabbi Denise Handlarski will offer commentary on contemporary issues and challenges relating to the Days of Awe period and the themes of the services. We’d love for you to join us.

Inspiration, education, gratification — get your Fall Festival fix at Oraynu!
