Please join us as we greet the year 5773 with soulful prayer, transcendental music and inspirational insights from our beloved Rabbi Naomi Levy and the Nashuva Band.

We are excited to announce a new, larger location for the High Holy Days:




This historic landmark building will allow 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.

The suggested donation for attendance at the High Holy Day services is $250 per person. 

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!
