Days of Awe 2017: The Complete Schedule
Nearly every day finds our sanctuary filling with music, our computers filling with poetry and prayer and thoughts, and our hearts filling with the invitation of this season — the opportunity to reflect on our lives, to make changes, to return to our own selves, to become the people we want to be, God wants us to be. These days are meant to be a journey, some of it taken together (we love it when all of us gather at Tashlich, for example, at the Santa Monica Beach next to Parking Lot 5S off Barnard Way), and some taken alone (the blessing of self-reflection). We look forward to beginning a new year in your good company.
