Rosh Hashanah Gathering
Rosh Hashanah means “Head of Year” and it is a time to celebrate a new year on the Jewish calendar. Biblically, we call this day Yom Teruah or “Day of Trumpets,” and it is a day for sounding the Shofar. We treat this day like Shabbat, and it is a day of rest and worship. So, we gather together to celebrate all that God has done in the last year and all he will do in the new year!

Rosh Hashanah Picnic & Tashlich
As we reflect with joy on the past year, we also look forward to the blessings of the new year on the Jewish calendar, and we celebrate together with food, drink, and fellowship. Tashlich is a Jewish tradition on Rosh Hashanah where we toss bread into our lake as a symbolic casting off of sins. It comes from Micah 7:19, “He will again have compassion on us. He will subdue our iniquities, and You will cast all our sins into the depths of the sea.” It’s a moving experience for everyone who participates as we begin a new Jewish year.

The picnic will be down at the lakefront after the service. Drinks will be provided, but food will be potluck-style. Members & regular attenders - please take a look at the food options on the sign-up, and sign up for 2 items to share! If you are visiting Restoration for Rosh Hashanah, please don't feel obligated to bring anything!

Erev Yom Kippur Gathering
Yom Kippur is the Day of Atonement, and one of the holiest days of the year for the Jewish people. It is a day of repentance in which we fast together, beginning at sundown this evening until sundown on Yom Kippur. While this is a somber time of fasting, it is also one of great rejoicing as we thank God for the blessing of his Son to atone for our sins.

8th Day Sukkot & Torah Rolling
Shemini Atzeret literally means “the eighth day.” It is the closing service for the festival of Sukkot. In Leviticus 23:33-43 it instructs us to have a celebration on the last day of Sukkot. We invite everyone to help us roll the Torah scroll from the end of Deuteronomy back to the beginning of Genesis, and we throw candy to celebrate the sweetness that is found in the Scriptures.

Sukkot Chili Cook-Off
Sukkot is the festival of booths, and we will celebrate by "living" in our sukkah (temporary dwelling) and eating together! Leviticus 23:33-43 instructs us to make temporary dwellings, take a day off, wave lulavs, and have a good time! Come and join us for a chili cook-off potluck after Shabbat gathering to celebrate this last festival in the Holy Days season.
