Congregation Beth Sholom looks forward to sharing the High Holy Days with you this September!

Shaliach tzibbur (prayer leader), musician, and teacher Aviva Chernick returns again to CBS to lead Renew Our Days: The High Holy Days Unbound, a special, two-part service occurring on the mornings of Rosh Hashanah Day 1 and Yom Kippur.
If you have already reserved or purchased your High Holy Day tickets for services at CBS, you can register for Renew Our Days now! (If you have not reserved/purchased High Holy Day tickets, please visit ....)
Renew Our Days is a prayer lab, a non-halachic service (e.g., there is no Torah service) inspired by traditional liturgy, but not bound to it. The service continues to evolve from last year’s initial iteration; it will move a bit further from a traditional structure, letting go of more of the text and incorporating more contemplative and embodied practice.Highlighting selected passages and prayers, Aviva will guide participants on a journey, an opportunity to rediscover and reconnect with the spiritual, emotional, and intellectual substance of Jewish prayer and the High Holy Days. “With curiosity and an openness to discover the experience of prayer anew,” Aviva says, “so much is possible.“Join us in song, prayer, and reflection as we experiencethe “Days of Awe” in a fresh and inspiring way.Renew Our Days is open to all CBS High Holy Day ticket holders, but space is limited and preregistration is required. Please plan to join us promptly at 10 a.m. The service will end at approximately 1 p.m. (During the Yom Kippur service, Yizkor will occur around noon.)
