Want to have a better sense of when to expect a heart-opening sermon or the awesome shofar blasting? Here’s a little road map to the holidays at Dor Hadash.
- Erev Rosh Hashanah — Sunday evening, September 29, 7:00 pm. Jump into the High Holy Days with a short and meaningful service followed by great treats baked by some of the best chefs in San Diego.
- Rosh Hashanah Day 1 — Monday, September 30, 9:30 am. Energy-filled service downstairs complete with all the greatest high holy days hits, plus powerful Torah reading, drashing, and great singing. Upstairs, rousing children's programming and family service, and then a big finish with all the kids joining in!
- Tashlih — Monday, September 30, 5:00 pm at Playa Pacifica in Mission Bay Park. Bring your bread crumbs for the seaside service we share with Ohr Shalom Synagogue. It’s a ritual “casting away” of our missteps, mistakes and bad patterns—all the things we don’t want to bring with us into the New Year.
- Rosh Hashanah Day 2 – Tuesday, October 1, 9:30 am. Book discussion with Rabbi Yael. Two hours of in depth, tangent taking, movie referencing, yet no experience necessary except an open mind. This year we will discuss Rabbi Edward Feinstein's The Chutzpah Imperative: Empowering Today's Jews For a Live That Matters. We will meed upstairs in the library.
- Kol Nidre — Tuesday, October 8, 7:00 pm. Kol Nidre is intense and powerful and the best way to dive into your annual 25-hour soul workout.
- Yom Kippur morning service — Wednesday, October 9, 9:30 am. Join us for an uplifting spiritual punch-in-the gut and make a day out of it. There will be lots of soul searching, learning, and singing. The children will have their family service outside and programming upstairs.
- Minhah / Yizkor / Martyrology service — Wednesday, October 9, 4:30 pm. We will start with a study of the Book of Jonah. Immediately following will be our beautiful memorial service, honoring the people we love who have died.
- Neilah — The home stretch. Hours of heart-stretching work culminate in a no-holds-barred service that bridges heaven and earth, and we lay it all on the line. So good you won’t want Yom Kippur to end. Closes with the children’s candlelight procession, havdalah and a final knock-your-socks-off blast of the shofar.
- Neilah Nosh — Join us right afterwards for light refreshments for break-the-fast.
