Mindfulness: BJ Community House & BJ Sanctuary

Mindfulness services, which take place on the first day of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur morning, are meditative and soul-stirring; powerfully communal and yet deeply personal. Utilizing truncated liturgy, we will dwell longer in certain prayers, allowing the spiritual themes of the Yamim Nora'im to truly enter our souls. As we embark in the journey of the mahzor, each of us is invited to engage in this process in a personal way, supported by the sound of communal singing in beautiful harmony.
