This historic landmark building allows us to accommodate everyone who would like to attend.  Invite your friends, family and neighbors to celebrate the Jewish New Year with Nashuva.  But we need you to reserve and donate now!

All High Holy Day services – except for Tashlich and the 2nd Day of Rosh Hashanah (at Temescal Canyon) – will be held at the Founder’s Church of Religious Science.

Nashuva does not charge admission for any of its services.  The suggested minimum donation for attendance at the High Holy Day services is $350 per person.  Nashuva relies on High Holy Day donations to support year round programs.  Please give from your heart.

We welcome everyone, but we invite you to support Nashuva at the High Holy Days by making a donation when you reserve your space.

We suggest a voluntary minimum donation of $350 per person.  We hope you will consider a higher amount to show your support and commitment to Nashuva.

Please understand that we are trying to ensure that Nashuva remain a special community and that it continue to offer a unique setting for spiritual awakening. Although we will not turn anyone away who cannot afford the $350 donation (tax deductible as allowed by law), we encourage you to donate to the best of your ability. Please note that it is very important that everyone complete the High Holy Days reservation form so that we have an indication of how many people we’ll have over the Holy Days.

Nashuva’s live Kol Nidre service webcast in partnership with JewishJournal.com is one of our community’s greatest outreach tools.

Last year 60,000 people participated with us from all across the world–People who are disconnected from Judaism and looking to return, people who are home-bound, people in nursing homes, hospital beds, people in hospice, Jews who are looking for a way to reconnect to our traditions and faith.

WE ARE SEEKING SPONSORS WHO CAN FUND A HIGH QUALITY FILM PRODUCTION OF OUR SERVICES THAT WILL GO OUT TO TENS OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE ALL ACROSS THE GLOBE.

WE ARE ALSO SEEKING SPONSORS WHO CAN HELP FUND OUR ROSH HASHANAH SERVICE AT TEMESCAL CANYON.   THIS IS ONE OF OUR MOST SPECIAL & BELOVED SERVICES BUT ALSO, OUR MOST COSTLY.

PLEASE EMAIL US AT highholydays@nashuva.com TO LET US KNOW WE CAN COUNT ON YOUR SUPPORT.

This is a great mitzvah with a huge impact for lifting spirits and for reviving souls. Please email us and support this amazing outreach service.

Once again this year, Nashuva is offering a Pre-Yom Kippur Meal at Founder’s Church to ease the stress of preparing and cleaning up a meal before Kol Nidre.

We will have an amazing children’s program with the Zimmer Children’s Museum by reservation only. Parents please register your children if you’d like to reserve a space for your child.  Our childcare program is available for morning services only.

CASUAL ATTIRE:

If you own a Tallit (prayer shawl), please bring it to morning services and to all Yom Kippur services.  If you do not own a tallit, buy yourself a gift this year and see how wonderful it feels to be sheltered beneath its wings.

Dress is casual for all Nashuva services, but we encourage you to come in white in honor of the Holy Days.
