ROSH HASHANAH Services & Programs

We know our members enjoy a wonderful family meal on erev Rosh HaShanah. This year we decided to join you and add to your home celebration! Sephardic Jews enjoy a SEDER on erev Rosh HaShanah and we are going to explore that with you from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM, just in time for you to have dinner. You’ll want to prepare some special foods for this SEDER to include on your table. Download the Rabbi’s shopping list so you can be ready!



Our Rosh HaShanah Morning Service will be livestreamed from our Temple Anshe Sholom main sanctuary. Set up your home sanctuary and dress up! Come online and be with us in holy space and time to mark Rosh HaShanah with essential prayers and readings. Our choir has recorded some special melodies and Cantor Baruch, along with Jordan Abraham, will be leading us in our favourite music of this season.


The Rosh HaShanah TORAH SERVICE is online from 12:00 PM to 12:45 PM. This important reading from our sacred scrolls will be offered by our Temple Members who have worked hard to prepare. Rabbi Cohen will be provided a D’var Torah to enlighten us on the messages in these words.


For those who long for a quiet gathering with poetry and readings to inspire your New Year, join this afternoon gathering from 2:00 PM to 2:45 PM. There is never time to embrace all of the moving readings in our Machzor, many of which are optional offerings on the left hand side of the page. Let’s explore and find meaning together!

Host: Laura Cattari          Clergy: Cantor Baruch


TASHLICH is the custom of casting away shortcomings from the past year. In one of the few opportunities this year to gather physically, we will meet you at Van Wagner’s Beach, by the parking lot at Hutch’s on the Beach Restaurant. Readings, songs and birdseed (instead of breadcrumbs) will be offered.

Please wear a mask and observe safe social distancing.

It’s a MITZVAH to hear the Shofar Blast on Rosh HaShanah. We’re inviting everyone for a DRIVE BY SHOFAR BLOWING event on Sunday, September 20th between 4PM and 5PM. Drive by Temple with your family bubble, decorate your car for Rosh HaShanah, bring your Shofar (if you have one). Shana Tovah Gift Bags given out to the first 100 vehicles!

Please wear a mask and observe safe social distancing.


Connect with us to welcome Shabbat, study Torah and celebrate together as a community.


Cantor Paula Baruch has embarked on the project of chanting the entire Torah this year. You can listen in by subscribing to her podcast. This is great for students of Torah chanting who want to learn more about chanting Torah!
