Event description

Description

Matanot Lev Rosh Hashanah - Night New Year Circle is a spacious, earthy and meaningful experience geared to Adults

This Rosh Hashanah, connect in community to Jewish new year traditions through chanting, earth-based creative ritual, shofar, and reflection.

We'll gather in sacred circle, modelled after the Red Tent New Moon Circle, to cross the threshold of this new near, leaving behind what no longer serves us, carrying forward the threads we want to weave in from the year that we are leaving behind and invite in visions and blessings for the year to come.

Attendees can expect: a radically different High Holy Day experience*.

  • Sit, dance, meditate, chant, hold silence, and pray in a circle.
  • Leave your shoes at the door.
  • Parents can stay and pray even if you don’t have child care, with the help of our “Prayground**”. A corner IN THE ROOM with quiet books and toys. You supervise your own kids and no one needs to miss out.
  • Ritual tools will include stones, water, thread, salt, shofar, and chants.
  • No one will be turned away due to lack of funds.

*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.

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

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.

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