Our service is held on the first floor chapel of Temple B'nai Moshe near Cleveland Circle (behind a triangle park). BC Greenline T. Parking on street. Some people have been coming to our services for years and others here for the first time. We use the Harlow prayerbook as a guide and supplement it with handouts and transliterations. We want you to understand the meaning of the whole service and not just the sermon. We want to give you an opportunity to participate or not as you prefer.
We only do the first evening and the first day of services for Rosh HaShanah and offer a full program for Yom Kippur and an invitation to a Sukkah. For those who want more, our rabbi offers holiday events and classes during the year.
The cost is a donation of your choice. We incur expenses in order to run the service and we appreciate your help. We do not have a children's service but we welcome kids praying with us. We offer lunch on Rosh HaShanah for cost and hope you'll join us to meet some folks and maybe come with us for the short, but lovely Tashlich service at a nearby pond which follows lunch.
Our services leaders are Rabbi Cherie Koller-Fox and Professor Everett Fox. Rabbi Cherie has served Congregations in Cambridge and Marlborough. She is currently the President of NewCAJE a national organization for Jewish educators and also works as a chaplain at hospitals and nursing homes. She is active in Daughters of Abraham, an interfaith group.
