Selichot is a beautiful tradition of joining together on the Saturday evening before Rosh Hashanah to mark the beginning of the High Holy Day season, including reflection, song, and changing the Torah scrolls into their special white mantles for this sacred time.


Tashlich (תשליך/lit. casting away) is a ritual performed each year during the High Holy Days as a way to symbolically cast off sins by tossing leaves, stones, bread crumbs, etc. into natural bodies of flowing water.

Morning Services

Our 9:00 am Rosh HaShanah Morning and Yom Kippur Morning services will be available in-person and online, offering a full, traditional service. Registration is required for members and is also available for extended family and guests.  All are welcome to join us by Livestream.

B'Yachad Services

We will be offering on the field at Camp Chickami and via Livestream. It will be an interactive service for everyone, especially geared for families with children in grades 3-7. B’Yachad means “together” and this is intended a service for us all to join together in prayer and song. (Note that in previous years, this was offered as our Early Morning Family Service).

Camp Chickami is located directly behind Temple Shir Tikva and offers a beautiful outdoor venue for us to celebrate together. The path to Camp Chickami contains some uneven ground and a flight of stairs. It is possible to access the field in a wheelchair, however it is not easy. You must bring your own seating (chairs or blankets): no chairs will be provided. You are encouraged to dress appropriately for an outdoor service (wear comfortable clothing and sunblock, shoes for walking across fields, and bring water). Space is plentiful, and we encourage you to brings guests, however, we are still requesting that you register them ahead of time.

In the event of bad weather, we will offer an indoor service in the Sanctuary with more limited seating, as well as Livestream.  All updates about the location of the service will be provided here on the Temple Shir Tikva website.


For families with young children (yeladim/ילדים), ages 0-5. These services are designed for the whole family to join us as we sing, dance, and pray together.  These services will also be held on the Camp Chickami field, adjacent to Temple Shir Tikva.  Space is plentiful and we invite you to bring your friends and neighbors; we are asking you to register for this service so we can alert you to weather-related service changes.

These services are part of our Yeladim offerings, which are open to all young families. Due to continued interest, we are offering our monthly Shabbat Yeladim services! It is a growing program, offering ways for young families to connect with each other through Temple Shir Tikva.

Yom Kippur Services
