Looking for a community to celebrate High Holidays? These four congregations are opening their doors to share the service with all – from Park Slope to Midwood. Check them out! High Holidays this year: Rosh Hashana this year falls on September 21 and 22, the fast of Yom Kippur starts the evening of September 29 and goes through September 30.
Chabad of Park Slope presents Shofar in the Park on September 21, 2017 at 5:30pm
We are once again bringing the meaningful, moving sound of the Shofar to the public sphere in Prospect Park during one of the most meaningful, moving times of the year. It will be an experience like no other. Come out for this public event on the first day of Rosh Hashanah (9.21.17) and bring along your family and friends. Join together with other Brooklynites for a bite-sized dose of inspiration, meditation, and vibration.
In this condensed half-hour “service” we will capitalize on the simple-yet-profound message of the Shofar and usher in the New Year with a transformative meditation, giving you the tools to make your year sweet. We recommend going to a full High Holiday service (and if you’re asking us – we’d send you to Congregation B’nai Jacob of Park Slope).
But if Synagogue wasn’t in your plans for this New Year – or you want to supplement the traditional with something out of the box – this is the place to be. We don’t place a price on your soul – so this event is completely free.
NOTE ABOUT LOCATION: Shofar in the Park won’t be in the Bandshell itself, but on the lawn next to it – at the 9th St. entrance. Following Shofar in the Park, we’ll be walking down to the Dog Beach for Tashlich – a special New Year prayer said adjacent to a body of water.
