General Info

Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur

The Rabbi leads services and student volunteers participate in the leading prayers, Torah service, and English readings. The services are led according to an inclusive, liberal Hillel tradition and are open to the community at large. For Yom Kippur, we offer Kol Nidre, services all day with additional activities planned between the traditional services such as meditation and yoga, walks, and study sessions.
