You don’t have to pay-to-pray, dress-to-kill, doze off, question your tribal affiliation, be fluent in Hebrew, hear lengthy moralizing or politically divisive sermons, and eat stale honey cake this Rosh Hashanah.
JConnectLA and Jewlicious are running our own version of the High Holidays in Los Angeles. This is a totally out-of-the boxexperience called Days of Awesome 2011, a Jewlicious High Holiday Experience.
We have a limit on space - so make sure to sign up (and make a donation if you can) if you are coming!
What is an Un-Service?
We have stripped down the services to include the most neccesary elements, infused with readings, and songs. On either side of the Un-Service are classes on relevant Rosh Hashanah Topics that are optional.
Bring any books or other items that you might want to use during the time for personal inspiration.
Seating will be both mixed and seperate for those that have different traditions.
We will not be having: Torah Reading, introductory psalms, long sermons and a few other elements of traditional services.
If you are looking for a traditional High Holiday Service - you may want to consider other services around LA. If you are looking for an out of the box High Holiday experience unlike anything you have done before - than Days of Awesome are for you.
