Innovative and Traditional Services

This Rosh Hashanah morning – you can pick from two different services:

  • Our traditional Rosh Hashanah service at 8:30 a.m.
    A Reform service featuring Hebrew and English reading, a mixture of traditional and contemporary High Holiday melodies.
  • Enjoy our 9:45 a.m. Rock Hashanah service
    Rock Hashanah will be a mostly musical service with a mixture of traditional melodies and Rock Shabbat melodies, and holiday melodies not yet heard at TRT.  Come for the music and stay for the prayer. More info
  • At 11:00am, everyone will come together for Torah, Haftarah and the Rabbinic sermon

We hope that whatever you choose, you choose to join us at TRT and celebrate the birthday of the world. We hope that you will join us in voice (and in song) as we lift our prayers to God, and connect you to the Jewish People and to the Rosh Hashanah missions of celebration and T’shuvah (return or repentance).

Our Tashlich experience this year will also be unique.  Read more here.

Yom Kippur will also feature a new unique experience – Sacred Zoom Rooms – during the afternoon. At 2 pm & 3 pm, join us for worship and discussion sessions.  Once again, we will be offering Sacred Texting, where you can share thoughts with fellow congregants and experience Yom Kippur in a new 21st Century way!  More info Other sessions address Racial Justice and text study.
