Celebrate the 5775 High Holy Days with the First Narayever Congregation at the Miles Nadal JCC

You are invited to spend Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur with the First Narayever Congregation. Erev Rosh Hashanah is September 24 and Kol  Nidre is October 3. Once again Rabbi Dr. David Weiss will lead our MNjcc services. Creative and inspirational programming for children and youth, including family services, is available at all times that the main service is running. For adults we also have meditative chanting led by Alon Nashman, and concurrent learning sessions led by Ralph Benmurgui. It’s important to us to provide you the ability to daven in a way that is meaningful to you.

Our Kol Nidre choir also returns, led again this year by Galia Shaked.
