A disciple of a certain rabbi once asked his teacher, “You know, I have noticed that each day you walk into the woods. I wonder, why do you go there?” The teacher replied, “I go there to find God.” The questioner prodded further, “Haven’t you always taught me that God is the same everywhere?” “Yes,” replied the rabbi, “but I am not.” 

Join Temple Israel in Sharon for a Rosh Hashanah experience where we can be ourselves, pray differently, relate to God, and reach within to access a spiritual dimension not always attainable in a sanctuary. Meditation, stories, song and prayer will help us be fully present.

We’ll begin our hike from the synagogue parking lot at 9 a.m. Join us there or meet us in the Moose Hill parking lot at 10:30 a.m. We’ll conclude by noon. More information, including weather updates, will be provided ahead of time to those who sign up.

This alternative worship experience is free, open to the public and co-sponsored with The Tiferet Center.
