The Chapel Service is an independent High Holidays community for people who want a place to celebrate Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur but don’t necessarily want to belong to a synagogue year round.
We use a prayer book/machzor by Jules Harlow to provide the structure for the service along with a supplement with transliterations and readings and songs. The service would be recognizable to you if you are used to a Conservative or Reform service. In addition, Rabbi Cherie explains what some of the prayers mean and invites participation in a variety of ways. Congregants lead readings, participate in discussions and share reflections from time to time. If you don’t want to speak, you are welcome to sit back and enjoy the service.
