Preparing for the High Holidays Like Never Before

September 3 – September 24, 2019

Pre-Registration is required; all classes are free

Co-sponsored by Chabad of the North Peninsula, Congregation Beth Jacob, Peninsula Sinai Congregation, Peninsula Temple Beth El, Peninsula Temple Sholom, and Peninsula Jewish Community Center

Jewish wisdom teaches that during the Hebrew month of Elul we are encouraged to prepare ourselves for the meaningful spiritual experience of the High Holidays. During this month, join rabbis and teachers of our community in twelve different classes focusing on some of the central themes of these holy days and designed to deepen our experience of Rosh HaShana (Jewish New Year) and Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement). People of all faiths, beliefs, and perspectives are welcome. All you need to bring is your curiosity.

Sunday classes will be held in person at the location noted in the class listing. Tuesday and Thursday classes will be webinars using Zoom. You may participate in as many of these classes as you wish. To register, use the link below or call 650.378.2703. You may register anytime up to five hours before each class. Links to connect to the webinars will be emailed to you after registration.
