What makes our Service Different?
Our services are inspirational, educational and easy to follow. Everything is explained in English and customized to fit your needs and give you the best experience possible.

Our goal is for you come out of the experience inspired and excited to start a new year.

Do I need to become a member to join the Services?
No! There is no requirement to become a member to join our services neither do we charge for our seats. However, we do appreciate the contributions made by the generous people who participate in our services and programs.

What if I can't pay?
Our Services are completely Free and there is no need to pay membership. Our services are open to all regardless of affiliation or background. It's stress free and lots of fun.

Do I need to bring a head covering, talit or prayer book?
No! We will provide all our congregants with all the provisions necessary. If you would like to bring your own head covering or Talit you may feel free to do so.

Yes. There is a Jewish Custom to go to a body of water and cast your sins there. We will have this special prayer available on by a river near HSU after services on the 1st day of Rosh Hashana.

What if I am not well enough to make it?
Do you know someone in Humboldt who is not well enough to make it to Synagogue on Rosh Hashana. Please drop us a line. We do house calls. We will try to make it over there to blow shofar for them.

Can I TiVo the Services and go Golfing?
Had to throw that one in. Why don't you TiVo Golf and come to Services.
