High Holy Days | ימים נוראים

Join the Nefesh Spiritual Community for An Ancient New Direction

More information about High Holy Days 5784 will be available next summer.

Nefesh High Holy Days 5783: The Unraveling

Our ancestors lay out an ancient new direction, a path inside, outside and through.
Each step unraveling into the heart of life as it is…
and with all laid bare, we open the possibilities of our lives, our communities, our world –
as it can be, as we need it to be, as we can and will transform it to become.

Together, we walked through these sacred days to take away, shed, unravel in order to make new.

All are welcome.

Every effort is made to hold services in entirely outdoor or hybrid spaces to maximize ventilation. In cases where we gather indoors, health and safety protocols will be updated to protect everyone in the community.
