Holistic Jew
High Holy Days 5774

Holistic Jew, a Jewish Renewal community, is delighted to invite you on an urban pilgrimage this High Holy Day season.

The 10 days between Rosh Hashannah and Yom Kippur are a sacred “time outside of time”. They offer an opportunity to reflect, forgive, release and attune your body, heart, mind and spirit to Hashem. We join together to sing, worship, contemplate, and rejoice together. More joy and less oy.

Led by Rabbi T’mimah Ickovits, with Holy Minstral Ittai Anthony and friends.  It is our custom to follow services by sharing kiddish; a blessing over fruit if the grape and a communal meal - with the exception of when we fast on Yom Kippur. You are invited to participate in a kosher community vegan, dairy, vegetarian potluck meals when you join us. We understand that sometimes cooking or picking up food is not part of your flow. Please bring something you would like to eat and share if you can. If you its not in your flow this time, join us for food - you can bring something another time or make a donation instead.

Location details given with RSVP. (Santa Monica Main Street area)
No one will be turned away for lack of funds. Some energy exchange opportunities are available.
