Please join us for a spiritually-uplifting, growth-oriented, traditional and streamlined 2 hour service followed by a gourmet, home-mode, healthy Kiddush lunch. Reservations start at $36 for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur in our newly renovated venue at 9041 W. Pico, corner of Weatherly.
Some Highlights – New Year’s Kabbalistic Home-Made Kiddush, best shofar in town, speedy services, stories, meditation, song, honey cake, inspiring and chill atmosphere, great Chazzan. . .
You don’t have to pay a fortune, 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. Instead, enjoy a friendly, joyous, participatory, celebration of the High Holidays with meaning, melody, and humor.
