Step into the New Year with us as we gather to rediscover our deepest intentions, to reveal the unique light that shines within each of us and to recommit to showing up and sharing that light with others. We will celebrate Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur with heart-opening, participatory singing, prayer, meditation and learning.

Where: The Poolside Cafe at  La Guardia Community College.

Directions:  The Poolside Cafe is in the E Building of LaGuardia Community College. Use the  entrance on Van Dam Street, close to 47th Avenue. To get there, take the 7 train to the 33rd Street stop, or the Q32 or Q39 buses. If you're driving, there's a parking lot on 29th Street between 47th Avenue and Skillman Avenue. Parking for the day is $16.00 ($5 after 4:00 PM). The lot is open until 10:45 each evening.

Services will still be open to all, without any membership requirement. But we encourage you to RSVP.

Childcare and a Children's Learning Program for kids 3-8 will be available during morning services on both Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Space is limited and registration is required. Look for more information and links to registration forms here soon. Babies and children of all ages are welcome in the sanctuary at all times.
