Event description

Description

Matanot Lev Rosh Hashanah Unservice is a spacious, playful and meaningful experience geared to people of all ages.


Join Kohenet Annie Matan to celebrate Rosh Hashanah, family and community. Community members connect to each other and Jewish new year traditions through Torah, songs, prayers, shofar, hands-on activities, movement and reflection. Challah, pomegranates, grape juice, apples and honey will be served.

Attendees can expect: a playful and interactive Un-Service experience*

  • An all-senses prayground in which to explore key elements of the holy days where:
  • We sit, dance, chant, hold silence, and pray in a circle
  • No one needs to sit silently in our seats/on our pillows
  • We will open and explore a (replica) Torah
  • Everyone can try to blow a shofar
  • We taste a variety of Rosh Hashanah foods
  • We work together to make a family/household gratitude bag to take home
  • We connect with traditional and original, creative liturgy in English and Hebrew.
  • No one will be turned away due to lack of funds.

Our community proudly includes all kinds of families: LGBTQ+, interfaith, patrilineal, Jewish, Jew-ish and those of other backgrounds who are curious about Judaism and seeking community. We welcome participants of all abilities.

Note to parents: There is a diaper-changing station, nursing chair, and quiet play room down the hall for those who need a break.

*Matanot Lev is a post-halakhic community. All are encouraged to experiment with new ways of connecting with old ideas. Always choose to participate in ways that feel good to you.

**Prayground is inspired by City Shul. As far as I know, they coined the term and have incorporated this practice in their Shabbat services.

College Street United Church is a fully accessible space. If you need any accessibility accommodations, please contact Michael Morgenthau at mmorgenthau@hotmail.com.
