Rosh HaShanah Day 2 (10/1—10am Chochmat HaLev 2215 Prince Street @ Fulton): This is primarily a chant and meditation service, which often inspires dancing. In place of the traditional Torah service, we’ll be doing a guided text study (in small groups/chevruta) that explores the intersection between t’shuvah, personal responsibility, and tikkun olam. Lunch is served following the service.
Energetic profile: Deep and high
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.
