Description

Rosh Hashannah

Sunday 2nd October, 5pm

Erev Rosh Hashanah, hosted by Ben and Rachael (call or email for address)


To mark Erev Rosh Hashanah, the Eve of the Jewish New Year, we will be holding a repeat of last year’s highly successful Rosh Hashanah seder. This little known yet beautiful ritual involves eating food that symbolises our hopes for the New Year ahead. There are many more symbolic foods alongside the well-known apple and honey (http://kosherfood.about.com/od/roshhashana/tp/7-Symbolic-Foods-For-Rosh-Hashana.htm). Please bring a dish containing at least one symbolic ingredient (you can also make up your own symbols!) to help us look forward to the year ahead.


Monday 3rd October, 11am-1230pm

Rosh Hashanah morning, Friends Meeting House, Friargate

Please let us know if you would like to blow the shofar or are prepared to help with children’s services/activities.


Tuesday 11th October, 7pm

Kol Nidre, Friends Meeting House, Friargate

We would very much like a volunteer who would like to play the haunting Kol Nidre melody to start the service on the traditional cello or another comparable instrument.  If you are able to help please email info@jewsinyork.org.uk today
