Join us for this unique opportunity to experience something deep and beautiful in these uncertain and challenging times…

Days of Awe Immersive Journey

Sacred Musical Audio Experience (think prayer podcasts), Nature Connection & Community

Imagine gathering safely with friends and family for a walk in your neighborhood or the woods, putting on your headphones, and singing and praying with Torah of Awakening ritual leaders and the sacred music ensemble BRIAH. While limited in how we can join in physical community, we can still come together in spirit and intention to mark, celebrate, and elevate the days of awe and this annual process of return.

Please view our comprehensive schedule for more details about our program offerings, lengths of podcast prayer services, and times of zoom gatherings.

Upon registration for this year’s unique High Holidays celebration, you will receive:
