The Community Day School Sanctuary.
High Holy Days presented by Rabbi Elyssa Joy Austerklein & Friends
We are delighted that this year's Open Door in-person services will be held at a NEW LOCATION! - the Hershorin Schiff Community Day School.
This year we are offering three services, Rosh Hashanah morning September 26 @ 10am and on Yom Kippur Kol Nidre services will take place on October 4 @ 7pm and Yom Kippur morning services will take place on October 5 @ 10am.
Rabbi Elyssa Joy Austerklein returns to lead High Holy Days in Sarasota. She led the High Holy Days for SRQ Jews Without Borders and then Ivrim Jews Without Borders for five years from 2013-2016 and 2021.
One of Rabbi Elyssa's special gifts is her ability to marry the tradition of well-known prayers and melodies with a fresh approach which is understandable, spiritually uplifting, warm, enthusiastic, and loving.
As a singer and songwriter, Rabbi Elyssa will be joined by professional musicians. Together, we will create a warm, intimate, and soulful experience in a comfortable venue or streamed online from the sanctuary of your home.
Our services are open to all, filled with music and meditation. We invite anyone who wants to live Jewishly during the Days of Awe to join us.
Join us in person or from your home with live stream on YouTube. The complete schedule of services is as follows:
Morning Services - Monday, September 26 @ 10am
Kol Nidre - Tuesday, October 4 @ 7pm
Morning Service - Wednesday, October 5 @ 10am
Space at the Community Day School is limited to 100 people. Please reserve your seat now.
