A Message from Our President, Carole Rodenstein

As I approach this High Holiday season, I am particularly grateful and appreciative of our TBA Community. The warm, vibrant and loving place created by our TBA family makes the role of president so meaningful. May this be a year of blessings for you and yours. I look forward to seeing you at the holidays.

Greetings from Our Rabbi, Keith Stern

Every year the High Holy Days inaugurate our reaffirmation of community. We are reaching out, seeking new relationships and recommitting to nurturing our deep congregational roots. It’s all about opening doors and brightening the light of joy and hope.

Service Descriptions


Slichot reminds us that the High Holy Days are coming fast! It’s time to calibrate our souls with this next period of our lives. We will enter this next phase together with quiet contemplation, beautiful music, and sweets.  

Rosh Hashanah Day 2 Emma Rehfeld, our new Cantorial Leader, will share her story with us on the 2nd day of Rosh Hashanah. Come learn more about her journey into Jewish music, her love of horses, and her passion for connecting with people. After services, we invite you to join us for a congregational lunch.  

On Tashlich, we gather together, children and adults of all ages, at the stream behind the temple. We sing High Holy Day tunes and consider the challenges of the new year. Then, we symbolically cast our individual sins on the water with the support of our entire community for a better, beautiful year. When the first day of Rosh Hashanah falls on Shabbat, Tashlich is done on the second day. 

Rosh Hashanah Family Service Welcome the new year with an interactive and engaging family service led by Rabbi Stern and Cantorial Leader Emma Rehfeld. Geared towards families with children age 12 and under, the service will feature songs, poetry, and storytelling. Come hear the shofar blown for the first time in the new year! Open to all ages and to the broader community – invite your friends and neighbors. 

Children’s Service and Program We are delighted to once again provide an opportunity for children in pre-kindergarten through grade 6 to pray together and participate in fun activities related to the High Holy Days. This short service and experience is led by Anne Kalis and teen leaders and runs at the same time as the main service in the sanctuary. Advanced sign up is required. In person only.   

Yom Kippur Interactive Family Experience Yom Kippur provides us with the opportunity to consider the ways we can make ourselves and the world better. In this family experience, you’ll set an intention as a family for Tikkun Olam, repairing the world. Join us for singing, praying, and learning with Rabbi Stern and Emma Rehfeld followed by interactive nature-based activities. Geared towards families with children aged 12 and under.  

Yom Kippur Afternoon Mincha Meditation Come spend a half hour meditating in a Jewish context. Focus on our breath with a beautiful meditation using Jacob’s ladder as a visual, check in with our bodies in a Hunger-based body scan, and end with a nugget of Jewish liturgy from Psalm 150, “kol ha’nishama t’haleil yah,” all that breathes, praises God. No prior meditation experience necessary, all ages welcome.  

Yom Kippur Healing Service This service is intended for all who need an extra boost, from those who are struggling with their own health challenges to those who provide care for others. We will sing songs of healing, read poems for strength, hear stories of beautiful brokenness, and practice other tangible rituals for Jewish wellness. We hope that you’ll take what you need, and leave the rest.
