L’Shanah Tovah!

Please join us for an exciting and uplifting High Holiday experience for Jews of all ages, presented by the Congregation of Moses and Shirat Haruach (Song of the Spirit). Rick Recht, Shira Kline and Rabbi Josh Warshawsky will lead us in song and prayer. Everyone is invited to join us – members, their families, friends, students and community members.
