There is also a Tashlich event with shofar blowing for members of all ages at a CBS member home on Rosh Hashanah Day 2, 5-6pm.  Space is limited.  Register here when you sign up for High Holiday services.

Preparing for the High Holidays with Beth Huppin: God's Attributes
Tuesday, 9/13 from 7:00-8:00pm on 
ZoomThe list of God's attributes from Exodus 34:6-7 is repeated numerous times in the high holiday liturgy. In this class we will examine these verses in their context in Exodus and in the High Holiday liturgy. What might these contexts teach us about God? About ourselves? About forgiveness? About our relationships with each other? If you have a Torah text and a Mahzor Lev Shalem, please have them available during the class. If you don’t, links to the appropriate pages will be made available. No previous knowledge is necessary. All are welcome. Register to be sent the Zoom link.
