High Holy Days 2022
MAQOM Offers Free Jewish High Holy Day Gatherings in Loudoun County
MAQOM A Jewish Place Prayer is excited to offer free Jewish High Holy Days services and gatherings for the upcoming 2022 High Holy Day season. Services will be conducted by Rabbi David Greenspoon, and feature a mix of traditional prayers and contemporary takes on the themes of the season. There will be no fundraising, and no politics. Everyone is welcome to attend the gatherings, hosted at the Bahai Community Center in Sterling. The beautiful facility is fully accessible, with plenty of easy on-site parking.
Our gathering schedule is:
Monday, September 26th 10:00-12:00 Rosh Hashanah services with Torah reading, followed by Tashlich at 1:00 at Algonkian Regional Park (tbc) in Sterling.
Tuesday, October 4th; 6:00-6:30 Pre-fast byo picnic dinner (no alcohol please, per contract with our host) followed by Kol Nidre and Yom Kippur evening services, 6:30-8:00.
Wednesday, October 5th; 10:00-12:00 Yom Kippur morning services with Torah reading, including Yizkor remembrances.
The generosity of an anonymous donor allows everyone who wishes to join the gathering without concern for a ticket. Our only constraint is the beautiful sanctuarys limited seating capacity; there are less than 300 seats total in the sanctuary. We want to make sure that your seat is ready for you; we ask that you register to help us welcome everyone. Registration information will be posted soon. You will be able to indicate which of the gatherings you wish to attend, and let us know how many will be joining you. Please feel free to reach out to Rabbi Greenspoon with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
