HIGH HOLIDAYS AT TRIBECA SYNAGOGUE

SOMETHING DIFFERENT THIS YEAR..
The central ritual of Rosh HaShanah is the shofar. This year, however, because Rosh HaShanah falls on Shabbat, we don’t sound the shofar. Now the reason the sages provided* seems trivial so we have to search for a deeper goal.
The shofar is a tool we have to help us express our regrets for past failings and our desire to be better human beings. So without the shofar we are on our own! The good news is that the sages had confidence in us that we have within us the spiritual potential to use our own voices to carry the day.
The high holidays in general are when we are to take stock of where we are spiritually so let’s all join together, find strength in numbers and soar into 5784!
While we expect our holiday experience at TriBeCa Synagogue will maintain its traditional energy, some changes are inevitable. The auxiliary services the first day will not be scheduled around the shofar and will be more open ended. Also, Tashlich will be moved to Sunday after we complete the afternoon service following kiddush.
Thus, on Sunday the family service will break at 11am and the children’s program will conclude at 11:15 am for the shofar. After kiddush on Sunday we will hold the afternoon service at approximately 2pm and expect to arrive at the Hudson, behind Stuyvesant at 3:00 pm.
We are happy to announce the return of our Family service run by our Chairman of the Board, Paul Schaeffer. This service is designed for those who are more comfortable with an explanatory, non-traditional service but still affords the opportunity to experience the sanctuary service. Best for adults and school age children.
