Yavneh, A Jewish Renewal Community, welcomes the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill community at our High Holiday worship services, as Rabbi Raachel Jurovics and Cantor Karen Kumin lead us on a spiritual journey through Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, the most sacred holy days of our tradition.
Rosh Hashanah starts the evening of Sept. 9. We invite you to make yourself at home in our warm, welcoming and spiritually energized community. We meet at St. Mark’s, 1725 N. New Hope Road, Raleigh.
The egalitarian service is conducted in a combination of Hebrew (with full transliteration) and English, drawing from both the traditional liturgy and a variety of modern interpretations. Cantor Kumin, along with our volunteer singers and musicians, inspires us with niggunim (Hasidic melodies), prayers, and songs.
Participants represent a variety of Jewish and non-Jewish backgrounds at every level of knowledge and observance. All are warmly welcomed regardless of affiliation, age, race, gender identity, or sexual orientation. There is no cost to attend, although we do ask that those who are financially able make a donation to help cover expenses.
