The Coastside Jewish Community is preparing to celebrate the High Holy Days, which mark the Jewish New Year, and invite the greater community to join them.
For more than a decade, the Jewish community has commemorated the holiday with innovative services that combine traditional worship and contemporary interpretations.
The services include Rosh Hashana at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 16, and 10:30 a.m. Monday, Sept. 17. Services also include a family service, child care, Oneg and Tashlich at Linda Mar Beach.
The holiday also includes Yom Kippur, with services at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 25, and 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 26. Also included in the observance are a family service, child care and Yizkor and Neilah services and a vegetarian potluck meal.
Back this year by popular demand is Contemporary Songs for Reflection, a musical participatory program at the Yom Kippur service.
The setting for the High Holy Days service will be St. Edmund’s Church in Pacifica.
Tickets are free for members but must be purchased by nonmembers.
