Ma'yan Tikvah's services are a combination of traditional and nontraditional; they are informal with opportunities for participation.

 

Morning services on both Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur are held outside, or if the weather requires it, under an outdoor pavilion. There is time to sing, to appreciate the natural world around us, to meditate and pray, to read and discuss the Torah portion, to hear the sound of the Sofar on Rosh HaShanah, and to remember our loved ones during Yizkor on Yom Kippur.

 

Rosh HaShanah services are followed by a pot-luck lunch and tashlich.

 

Dinner on the second night of Rosh HaShanah will be co-sponsored by Open Spirit, but we are still searching for a location nearby.

 

Kol Nidre services are mostly indoors, but partially outdoors if weather permits.

 

Late Yom Kippur afternoon, Common Street Spiritual Center will host a family friendly, but adult appropriate activity, followed by a short hike to Coolidge Hill for Neilah and havdalah, and then a return to the center for a pot-luck break-fast. 

 

Further details for all services will be sent upon registration. All are welcome, including families with children. The sites for the first day of Rosh HaShanah, Rosh HaShanah Dinner, Yom Kippur morning, and Kol Nidre are handicap accessible.

 

Please bring packaged foods for a food drive to benefit the Grow Clinic at Boston Medical Center. See the file below for suggestions of what to bring.
