Temescal Park – High Holy Days 2021

Rosh Hashanah Day 1 – September 7, 2021

Yom Kippur Day – September 16, 2021

Please Register to Attend or to Join Us via LiveStream

Join Rabbi Naomi Levy and the Nashuva Band for both Day 1 of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur Day in nature. The Psalms ask us to experience God in nature, but so often we pray these words of majesty indoors. Nashuva at Temescal is a time when our prayers come alive and God’s hand is felt among the grasses and the trees – an opportunity to be taken back to our roots.

If you are joining us at any of our live, in-person services,

  • chairs will be provided (except for Tashlich)
  • the services are outside, so please dress accordingly
  • all who are eligible must be vaccinated
  • masks will be required at all times

A short hike (transportation will be provided for those that prefer not to hike) will lead you straight to where our service will begin, in the stunning and shady meadow at Temescal Canyon. The magical service will begin at 10:00 am.

We will have ushers at the entrance to Temescal to show you where to park. A $12 parking fee will apply, per vehicle, per day. Nashuva will pick up $2 for those who bring $10 cash. Please ask if you require special assistance to get to the meadow.

At 10:00 am we gather together to pray in the meadow beneath the shade of sycamore trees. Rabbi Levy and the Nashuva Band will be leading us in a true prayer experience. Everyone is called up to the Torah that day for a special chance to receive a blessing. It is a Jewish Tanglewood.

An experience like no other.

If you’ve never prayed with us in Temescal, join us to experience the magic. Invite your friends, your neighbors, your relatives, your co-workers.   Invite people you know will not attend a traditional service. Temescal is our outdoor temple.

This is a service you will not want to miss!

Please spread the word and invite all your friends to join us!
