S'lichot Craft, Nosh, and Service

On August 28th at 6:00pm, we will gather to connect, make and decorate apples and honey kits, and indulge in a substantial nosh. Please use the form below to register and order kits and food.

Please note that you must register to attend the service even if you do not plan to eat or make the craft.

Traditionally, we eat apples and honey on Rosh Hashanah, to embrace and invite the sweetness we hope for in the New Year. This 3D kit is simple to put together by oneself or with family, to hold a small jar of honey. On August 28th, as we gather for S'lichot this year, the spiritual beginning of our High Holy Day period, there will be time to make these together if you choose to purchase the kit in advance. Each kit costs $5. If you cannot join us for S'lichot, you can still pre-purchase the kit to be picked up during the week following S'lichot (Monday August 30th).  This is an easy and lovely way to create something new and meaningful for Rosh Hashanah this year!

The nosh costs $10 per person and includes one wrap of your choice from the options below, chips, a beverage, and a gourmet doughnut from Duck Doughnuts. Please select how many of each wrap you would like below.
