HHD Service Descriptions

There’s Something for Everyone!

What thunders most loudly during this upcoming season ought not be which service is being led by whom in which setting, but rather the question of whether we are preparing our souls for something potentially transformative. Whatever service or program you end up in, whichever tune you hear or do not hear, whatever wisdom shared by a rabbi that does or does not penetrate you… it is our hope that you are investing in the work that will help make these holidays quite high, uniquely holy, truly days of awe.

Traditional, spiritual, and song-filled services led by Rabbi Adam Kligfeld, and featuring inspiring davening by our Cantor, Rabbi Hillary Chorny.

Known for being spirited, song-filled, and family friendly, the Beiteinu service features upbeat melodies, time-honored, high holiday favorites, and moments of contemplation, conversation, and consideration led by Rabbi Rebecca Schatz and our kavanah-filled hazzan, Rabbi Josh Warshawsky. 

The Library Minyan is a participatory, lay-led, davening and learning community that blends traditional observance with a fully modern and egalitarian approach to Jewish living. Volunteers prepare and deliver the d’rashot, which offer personal and often unique interpretations of the Torah portions.
