High Holidays 5780 – Services Times

When we lift our eyes heavenward and search the depth and beauty of a cloudless night sky… May we feel the expanse of creation and humbly forgive ourselves and each other, May we grasp the splendor of humanity with our flaws and whimsies, our regrets and dreams, And may we renew our promise to fashion a better future for ourselves, for all others and for this world which is, above all, our home.”

Rabbi Peter J. Rubinstein
Director of Jewish Community and Bronfman Center for Jewish Life
