Humanistic Rosh Hashanah Service

Presented by the Westchester Community for Humanistic Judaism. Humanistic Jews see Rosh Hashanah as a time for renewal, reflection, and new beginnings. Our focus is on the affirmation of human power and human dignity. Rosh Hashanah is a time to consider the possibilities for change, improvement, and happiness that we can create for ourselves as human beings. By acknowledging human courage and independence, we can achieve human dignity. Humanistic Jewish communities have adapted many of the ceremonies that are part of the rabbinic celebration of Rosh Hashana. As the first day of the Jewish year, Rosh Hashana marks a turning point, a separation between what was and what will be. It offers a time for Humanistic Jews to pause in their daily lives, reflect on their behavior, and renew their commitment to their highest values. The creative liturgies used by Humanistic Jewish communities on Rosh Hashana reflect these themes. Time: 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
