Rabbi Hanan & Friends at Unity of the Valley
Come share the spirit & wisdom
of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur
These holy-days are a time of prayer, music, reflection and learning,
a time when the veils between the worlds thins.
The services are liberal, renewal, feminist, and inclusive in orientation,
yet draw from traditional and mystical sources.
All are welcome to come to any or all of the services.

All are welcome to participate in our services. We do not charge or sell tickets, but rather request a tax deductible $25 -$50 donation per adult for each of the four main services (2 morning and two evening), or an appropriate amount based on your financial situation.
To avoid dealing with money during the High Holy Days a mail back card and envelope are enclosed. Donations can also be made at the door. Make checks out to Ad-Olam. All money goes to support the work of Ad-Olam. Our combined collaborative efforts make these services possible.
We need volunteers for this and other events throughout the year. Let us know what your interest and talents are on the mail back form. This is especially important if you are unable to contribute financially.
Other ways of giving can be found our our support page.
Regretfully official childcare is not provided. Parents are asked to share co-oping childcare during High Holy Day services. Snacks and juice will be provided and a room at Unity will be available for use by parents.
