Rosh HaShanah Day 1 (9/30—10 am): This service includes a Shacharit/morning service, a Torah service, a spectacular Creation Pageant with our kids and families, a Shofar service and Musaf, which includes the special HHD prayers/liturgy. Expect some traditional chant, some call/response kirtan, and a little Leonard Cohen.
Energetic profile: Full spectrum
Our goal is to offer services — Shabbat, holiday, and holy day — that are welcoming, participatory, and inclusive. Our prayer book is filled with words of inspiration from traditional Hebrew prayers to contemporary English poetry; everything in Hebrew is also presented in transliteration, and translation.
Chochmat HaLev strives to open, engage, and excite the hearts, minds, bodies and spirits of all who step though our doors. Each of our HHD services has a slightly different feel…we design the services to be both “stand alone” experiences and part of a larger arc of the journey from opening the gates on Rosh HaShana to closing them on Yom Kippur. All of our services utilize a different mix of prayer technologies including traditional liturgy, chant, meditation, conversation, and movement.
