Secular Humanist Jewish Circle’s High Holiday Celebration combining a sense of community, a strong Jewish identity, inspiration, spirituality, and meaningful participation…
Leader: SHJC welcomes Jeremy Kridel, a practicing attorney, with bachelor and masters degrees in religious studies and now studying for the rabbinate at the
International Institute for Secular Humanistic Judaism.
Time and Place:
Saturday, October 8, 2016, 10--2

Doors open at 9:30 a.m., and the service begins at 10.
What: Kol Nidre chanted by soprano Victoria Kinghorn, a tashlich ceremony, shofar blowing, songs, poetry, a flower ceremony to remember loved ones, and more.
