Please join us as we greet the year 5775 with soulful prayer, transcendental music and inspirational insights from our beloved Rabbi Naomi Levy and the Nashuva Band.

We are excited to return to Founder's Church for the High Holy Days:




This historic landmark building allows us to accommodate everyone who would like to attend.  Invite your friends, family and neighbors to celebrate the Jewish New Year with Nashuva.  But we need you to reserve and donate now!

All High Holy Day services - except for Tashlich and the 2nd Day of Rosh Hashanah (at Temescal Canyon) - will be held at the Founder's Church of Religious Science.

Nashuva does not charge admission for any of its services.  The suggested minimum donation for attendance at the High Holy Day services is $350 per person.  Nashuva relies on High Holy Day donations to support year round programs.  Please give from your heart.

If you've been moved by Nashuva on Shabbat, the High Holy Days with Nashuva will take you deeper and higher.   Please join us as we welcome the Jewish New Year! 

And, take a moment . . . think of people you know who would benefit from a Nashuva experience and invite them for High Holy Days!

We welcome everyone, but we invite you to support Nashuva at the High Holy Days by making a donation when you reserve your space.

We suggest a voluntary minimum donation of $350 per person.  We hope you will consider a higher amount to show your support and commitment to Nashuva.

Please understand that we are trying to ensure that Nashuva remain a special community and that it continue to offer a unique setting for spiritual awakening. Although we will not turn anyone away who cannot afford the $350 donation (tax deductible as allowed by law), we encourage you to donate to the best of your ability. Please note that it is very important that everyone complete the attached High Holy Days reservation form so that we have an indication of how many people we'll have over the Holy Days. 

Once again this year, Nashuva is offering a Pre-Yom Kippur Meal at Founder's Church to ease the stress of preparing and cleaning up a meal before Kol Nidre.  Dinner registration closes September 29th, 2014 at 11:59 pm.  Space is limited, so reserve now!  To sign up for dinner (if you have not already made your reservation):
