Join with your North Peninsula rabbis and leaders for learning about how to prepare ourselves to approach the High Holy Days with Chesed, Kindness. Rabbi Lisa, Rabbi Rebecca, and Rabbi Genevieve and other North Peninsula clergy members will each lead a small group based on the same learning material. This a great way to connect with people in our own community and beyond! The learning session is followed by Havdalah and a reflective service in the sanctuary led by Cantor Elana and Saul Kaye and the North Peninsula Clergy.
